What Others Are Saying

Senegal, Africa, Unheard Heros.
"5/5 stars.... You won't want to put it down! A true story of adisaster so enormous yet so preventable!. Worse than the Titanic, thistragedy should have been front page news, but now told, it brings thereader into the personal, harrowing experiences of the survivors.Becoming engrossed in this atrocity/disaster and gaining incite into thelife and death experiences encountered on Le Joola, this narrative brings you up close and personal to the people, their fight to survive in an unbelievable struggle against all odds. Their loss and how theirgovernment failed them is a story that will make you wonder why the rest of the world has had little news and so little interest. Get yourhandkerchief out!" ~ Louise, September 15, 2012
