How do people whose entire way of life has been destroyed and who witnessed horrible abuses against loved ones construct a new life? In "Making refuge" Catherine Besteman follows the trajectory of Somali Bantus from their homes in Somalia before the onset in 1991 of their civil war, to their displacement to Kenyan refugee camps, to their relocation in cities across the United States, to their settlement in the struggling former mill town of Lewiston, Maine.
