A Long Walk To Water Timeline
The war comes to Salva’s village and must run into the bush.

“Running as hard as he could, into the bush.”

Salva arrives at the camp and sees many people everywhere he looks.

Southern Sudan and Ethiopia, 1985

“Salva had never before seen so many people in one place at the same time.”

Ethiopians told the people at the refugee camp to leave.

This is important because if this never happened he would have just lived the rest of his life in that refugee camp. He would not go on any new adventures, he would just have a semi-normal life at the camp.

“Masses of armed soldiers poured out of the trucks and ordered everyone to leave.”

Page 74

Ifo Refugee camp, kenya 1996

“There it was. Salva Dut-Rochester, New York.”

Salva goes back to Sudan to go and meet his father in a hospital.

This is important because Salva hasn’t seen his father for 15 years. They will be reunited and happy to see each other. If this happened to me, and I haven’t seen my dad in 15 years I would be the happiest man alive,

“Salva entered the shanty that served as a recovery room at the makeshift hospital.”
