              A true story of survival and triumph against incredible odds. When Saroo Brierley used Google Earth to find his long-lost home town half a world away, he made global headlines. Saroo had become lost on a train in India at the age of five. Not knowing the name of his family or whe...re he was from, he survived for weeks on the streets of Kolkata, before being taken into an orphanage and adopted by a couple in Australia. Despite being happy in his new family, Saroo always wondered about his origins. He spent hours staring at the map of India on his bedroom wall. When he was a young man the advent of Google Earth led him to pore over satellite images of the country for landmarks he recognised. And one day, after years of searching, he miraculously found what he was looking for. Then he set off on a journey to find his mother. A Long Way Home is a moving and inspirational true story that celebrates the importance of never letting go of what drives the human spirit - hope. This younger readers' edition is being published to tie in with the release of the major motion picture Lion, starring Dev Patel, David Wenham and Nicole Kidman. Told chronologically, it features new material from Saroo about his childhood, including a new foreword for young readers, and a Q & A about his experiences and the process of making the film
