A disparate group of men and women confronts their own individual moral crises, fears, and physical dangers as they work to alleviate the hardships and suffering caused by civil war and famine in contemporary Sudan. Reader's Guide available. Reprint. 60,000 first printing.
Philip Caputo, who has been fascinated by Africa for all his adult life, returns to the world of HORN OF AFRICA (1980) to tell a tense, panoramic, and up-to-the-minute story set amidst the civil war in southern Sudan. Caputo's large international cast includes pilots, warlords, missionaries, mercenaries, revolutionaries, and people who want desperately to help the beleaguered Sudanese. As he details their conflicting loyalties, their struggles to do the right thing amidst chaos and moral ambiguity, and the intensity of their personal lives, he paints a dazzling portrait of the continent, its diverse array of people, and the aid groups, each with its own agenda, who try to intervene.
