Freddy was a young man full of life and curiosity. He regaled his friends with lively stories and led a life of happiness and contentment. But seeing a dead body at the age of eleven and watching a civil war take shape around him brought his childhood to a screeching halt, and what transpired from there was just one of countless stories of young men fleeing their country in hopes of escaping the atrocities of war.
Elvis Valle gives civil war a face as he takes the reader on a deeply personal story of hope, love, and loss and the plight of so many men in El Salvador during that time of civil unrest.
