In 1971, teachers Barb and Clark Olson, together with the two small children, moved to Gondar, Ethiopia. For four years, Barb kept a detailed journal about the family's experiences, recording people's stories and events both domestic and political, local and national, chronicling the early days of the revolution, as well as the drought and famine moving across this East African nation. Barb now lives with her husband in Springfield, Illinois where she writes and is a community organizer.

This book is a ?Thank you? to the people of Gondar and a tribute to the resiliency and vision of Ethiopia's youth.

Several of these stories are published separately, including the children's book, Christmas in Gondar, Five Ethiopian Stories, available soon.
