    A stunning literary survival story of three young Sudanese boys, two brothers and a cousinA hailed by the Los Angeles Times as a A moving, beautifully written account, by turns warm and tender."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 illnessesA dysentery, malaria, and yellow fever- how they dodged the life-threatening predatorsA lions, snakes, crocodiles and soldiers alikeA 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.

        A simple plural does not need an apostrophe.

      Both the documentation and the SKU field tooltip say you can "Йleave blank to use the parent product SKU." This is inaccurate, unless it is a Virtual product. If it is a physical product that has stock, it's required.
