Description
 

A haunting and powerful story about war-torn Africa, a mystical orphan boy, and the power of narrative to give a chaotic world order. In the hot African night a single gunshot cracks the silence. Jose Antonio traces the sound to the stage of the local theatre company, where he finds Nelio, the young prophetical leader of the city s street kids, crumpled in blood. Nelio refuses to be taken to the hospital but instead tells Jose his life s story: how bandits raided his village, his daring escape, and his struggle to survive on the streets. Jose is irrevocably changed. He becomes the Chronicler of the Winds, revealing Nelios s magical tale to all who will listen.
