At one time, all of the children in this book lived on the streets of Kigali, the capital of Rwanda. Their parents died from the genocide in 1994 or from the AIDS pandemic. The stories are taken from their personal experiences, traditional folk tales, or unique creative imaginations. The children range in age from ten to nineteen and tell tales that span all generations. They share their unique words and perspective from a thousand-year-old oral tradition and speak for all of those that have been silenced. A portion of the proceeds from this book will go to the village in Rwanda that provided these tales.
