In the warm style loved by readers of his previous twelve books, author S.C. “Curt” Iles returns with a new short story collection, Trampled Grass.
Containing forty stories about South Sudan’s recent refugees and the northern Ugandans who welcome them, Trampled Grass is a healthy mixture of stories of friendship, sorrow, humor, and the resiliency of the human spirit.
Going beyond the headlines and statistics of the current crisis in South Sudan, the stories take readers into the hearts and lives of real people. The book contains numerous photos, videos, and links.
Author Iles, who lives in Uganda, chronicled these human interest during work in refugee camps during 2014. He and wife DeDe serve with the International Mission Board.
