“This book is dedicated to every child running in fear because of conflicts that have nothing to do with them.” - James Roy
The book One Thousand Hills is an amazing book! I think that it is a really good candidate for the global issues novel study and I think you should definitely read it.
It is about a very sensitive topic, genocide in Rwanda. It is a good candidate for the global issues novel study because historically accurate. Reading this book can inform you about what is happening in different parts of the world. This book connects to what is happening in our world today because, in the book, the Tutsi people were being discriminated against because of their different beliefs. They were called cockroaches and then 8,000 people were killed all at once in a church. In our world today people are being discriminated against because of their race, gender, and age.
One Thousand Hills is a very good book and I would highly recommend reading it if you haven’t.
