Synopsis:

This is an inspiring and often times heartbreaking memoir of one man's work with child soldiers, refugees, and children orphaned by civil war. Through the stories and drawings of children from Congo, Burma, Kosovo, Sudan, and Rwanda - the sites of some of the most violent upheavals of the past decade - we see the invisible narrative of the young as they experience, understand, and are shaped by the conflicts around them. These stories are sometimes painful, sometimes triumphant, sometimes funny, and sometimes terrifying. In that regard, they represent an accurate picture of war and are a valuable alternative to the politically-charged rhetoric we are given in our news reports. Told with compassion and eye-opening frankness, this is beasts of no nation told from the outside looking in - but all true.
