Summary
"For nearly five decades, Colombia has been embroiled in internal armed conflict among guerrilla groups, paramilitary militias, and the country's own armed forces. Civilians in Colombia face a range of abuses from all sides, including killings, disappearances and rape--and more than four million have been forced to flee their homes. The oral histories in Throwing Stones at the Moon describe the most widespread consequences of Colombia's human rights crises: forced displacement. Narrators recount life before displacement, the reasons for their flight, and their struggle to rebuild their lives."--Page 4 of cover
