Review: The Boy Who Runs: The Odyssey of Julius Achon

The Boy Who Runs: The Odyssey of Julius Achon
The Boy Who Runs: The Odyssey of Julius Achon by Julius Achon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A compelling, inspiring narrative that takes one into the heart-rending anguish of post-colonial Uganda, the lives of outstanding runners from Africa, and the heart and mind of a boy far wiser than his years.

Julius Achon manifests the true qualities of a dano adano, a human person, as he described his friend and mentor Jim Fee.

Highly recommended.
