Books That Make You Experience a Dangerous Journey from Slave to Leader

Paulino Mamiir Chol was abducted as a child, separated from family and taken forcibly -- by gunpoint -- to Northern Sudan.

In time, however, he rose up, and came to lead the terrified, starving group of boys the international community would come to know as The Sudanese Lost Boys. On a march to freedom, he eventually traveled barefoot across three African countries.

Leading The Lost Boys: The Untold Journey, written by Paulino himself, chronicles his amazing journey. These days, he is pursuing his Ph.D. at Colorado Technical University in management and homeland security. In addition, Paulino has a Master’s in law and policy from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, as well as a Bachelor of Arts degree in criminal justice from the University of Colorado.
