Heartbreaking, Heartwarming, Inspiring, and Educational Daniel’s autobiography will inspire you, educate you, make you cry, and will make you fall in love with his entire family. Daniel’s journey, alongside his fellow Lost Boys and Girls of Sudan, will open your eyes, your mind, and your heart. I have given this book to many friends and family members, and recommended it to friends in book clubs and middle school children doing book reports. Daniel is a pillar of society in San Diego, and has done much for the Sudanese refugee community. He gives lectures at schools and community events, and has been featured on a San Diego news station many times over the years. To know him, is to love, admire, and respect him, alongside his wife Mary, who’s story is also told in Hinterlands of Hope. You will come away from this book with a deeper understanding of what it means to live through the horrors of genocide, build a new life as a refugee, and keep your faith in God and your fellow humans. Put this book on your reading list. Your heart will forever be changed. Read more

Hinterlands of Hope Hinterlands of Hope is the remarkable recount of how Daniel was detached from his family at the young age of 6 because of the attacks on his Sudanese village during a civil war. Through fathom, dangerers of the wilderness, and constant relocation, he survived. Once you start reading, you won't want put the book down. Read more
