The inspiring story of three young Sudanese boys who were driven from their homes by civil war and began an epic odyssey of survival, facing life-threatening perils, ultimately finding their way to a new life in America. Between 1987 and 1989, Alepho, Benjamin, and Benson, like tens of thousands of young boys, took flight from the massacres of Sudan's civil war. They became known as the Lost Boys. With little more than the clothes on their backs, sometimes not even that, they streamed out over Sudan in search of refuge. Their journey led them first to Ethiopia and then, driven back into Sudan, toward Kenya. They walked nearly one thousand miles, sustained only by the sheer will to live. They Poured Fire on Us from the Sky is the three boys' account of that unimaginable journey. With the candor and the purity of their child's-eye-vision, Alephonsian, Benjamin, and Benson recall by turns: how they endured the hunger and strength-sapping illnesses-dysentery, malaria, and yellow fever; how they dodged the life-threatening predators-lions, snakes, crocodiles and soldiers alike-that dogged their footsteps; and how they grappled with a war that threatened continually to overwhelm them. Their story is a lyrical, captivating, timeless portrait of a childhood hurled into wartime and how they had the good fortune and belief in themselves to survive.

Oysters vary in taste and quality more than any other Louisiana seafood and that's why knowing how to choose the best oysters is so important. Fisheries expert Jerald Horst and his wife Glenda, who grew up cooking in a commercial fishing family, carefully guide readers along the path to successful meals, beginning with a comprehensive review of oyster biology and the oyster industry. From inspecting shells and water quality to checking the appropriate weight and tags, this oyster encyclopedia includes detailed information no seafood lover could resist. Photographs accompany invaluable instructions on shucking and freezing the delicacy without damaging its sensitive soft tissue. Somewhere between choosing ingredients and understanding the oyster life cycle comes the best part-more than seventy-five delectable recipes have been added to this collection, including Drago's Charbroiled Oysters, Angels on Horseback, and Dudley's Deadly Fried Ones, all of which prove well-worth the shucking time. ABOUT THE AUTHORS Jerald Horst is a retired fisheries expert who taught fisheries science at Louisiana State University for more than thirty years. He is a member of the Louisiana Chapter of the American Fisheries Society and frequently writes for Louisiana Sportsman magazine. He is the coauthor of Angler's Guide to Fishes of the Gulf of Mexico, available from Pelican. Glenda Horst was born and raised on Bayou Sorrell, Louisiana, a small commercial-fishing community on the edge of the Atchafalaya Basin. The daughter of a commercial fisherman, she learned the basics of Cajun cooking from her mother. The Horsts also coauthored three other volumes of The Louisiana Seafood Bible Series, covering shrimp, crawfish, and crabs. They have repeatedly appeared on Good Morning New Orleans, The Food Show with Tom Fitzmorris, and Outdoors with Don Dubuc. The Horsts live in Franklinton, Louisiana.
