Global Issues Narratives are stories about people. Each book focuses on a global problem. There are three stories in one book. The stories are braided together. Braided means to tie together three or more things. That is, the stories connect the lives of three different people in three different places. They are told through the eyes of the people and how they are affected by the problem in their everyday lives.
Global Issues Narratives: Mine is about a village in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).  The village is very poor. A mining company opens a big cobalt mine near the village. Read the stories, The Boy, The Chief and The Idea to find out what happens in the village near the mine.
