A child soldier…


A belated present from a Geographer mate Jo, ‘A long way gone’, is the true story of Ishmael Beah, a child solider involved in the civil war in Sierra Leone, those of you familiar with the film ‘Blood Diamond’ will know something of the background to the conflict, it is a harrowing read, but well worth it to gain an insight into the childhood geographies of others. There are a number of multi-media resources on the website, including Ishmael reading the first chapter from this book.

Ishmael speaks here on the The Hour show


A truly inspirational individual.
