Summary
Andres dreams about peace in his homeland of Colombia, where fighting has been going on for more than 50 years. When rebel groups threaten his family, they flee their home to find safety in the neighboring country of Ecuador where they face an uncertain future. Interspersed with facts about Colombia and its people, this narrative tells a story common to many refugees fleeing the country. Readers will learn about the decades of conflict there and how they can help refugees in their communities and around the world who are struggling to find permanent homes
