A Long Way Home (Saroo Brierley) | Adoption Gifts, Adoption Books
Back Cover Excerpt:
As a little boy in India, Saroo Brierley got lost on a train. Twenty five years later, from Australia, he found his way back. This is what happened in between.
Born in a poor village in India, Saroo lived hand to mouth in a one-room hut with his mother and three siblings...until, at age five, he mistakenly boarded a train by himself and ended up in Calcutta, all the way across the country. Uneducated, illiterate, and unable to recall the name of his hometown, he managed to survive on that city's rough streets.
Soon after, he was adopted by a couple in Tasmania. But despite growing up in a loving upper-middle-class Aussie family, Saroo still clung to the last memories of his hometown and family in India, and always wondered if he'd ever find them again. Amazingly, twenty-five years later, with some dogged determination and a heap of luck-- at the advent of Google Earth--he did.
A Long Way Home is a poignant and inspirational true story of survival and triumph against incredible odds, celebrating the importance of never letting go of what drives the human spirit: hope.
