This is a well written biographical fiction of Lado, from the Murle tribe that live in what is now called Sudan. It is written from an anthropological perspective, beautifully describing the Murle people, their customs and beliefs. Based on the real person,Lado, and his true longing to understand Tammu, the word for God in Murle, the story follows him from a boy who had never seen a white man to a man who through his contact with white man finally has his many questions about Tammu answered.
