Description

Ishmael Beah tells his story in the new book A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier. When Beah was a young teenager, his village in Sierra Leone was destroyed, and he was kidnapped by the Sierra Leone army and turned into a child soldier: a drug addicted adolescent with an AK-47, unafraid to kill. Three years later, he and other child soldiers were brought to a UNICEF rehabilitation camp, and he began the long process of regaining his humanity. That process eventually led him to Oberlin College.
