In the Sea There Are Crocodiles free pdf What would you do if, when you were ten, you were left to fend for yourself, and, in order to survive, you had to undertake a harrowing journey all the way from Afghanistan to Italy? In early 2002, Enaiatollah Akbari s village fell prey to the Taliban. His mother, fearing for his life, led him across the border. So began Enaiat s remarkable and often publishing five-year ordeal trekking across bitterly cold mountains, riding the suffocating false bottom of a truck, steering an inflatable raft in violent waters through Iran, Turkey, Pakistan, and Greece, before he eventually sought political asylum in Italy, all before he turned fifteen years old. Here Fabio Geda delivers the moving true story of Enaiat s extraordinary will to survive and of the accidental brotherhood he found with the boys he met along the way. "In the Sea There Are Crocodiles" brilliantly captures Enaiat s engaging voice and humor, in what is a truly epic story of hope and survival, for readers of all ages."
