While the United States battled Vietnamese Communists in the 1960s and 1970s, in neighboring Cambodia dictator Pol Pot and his Khmer Rouge declared war on their own people, enslaving and slaughtering anybody who disagreed with them. Sichan Siv knew he would soon be a target - ending up, perhaps, as one of the millions of anonymous human skeletons buried in his nation's Killing Fields - so he heeded his mother's pleas and ran. Captured and forced to perform slave labor, Siv feared that he'd be worked to death or killed. It was only a matter of time. But he never abandoned hope or his improbable dream of freedom - a dream that liberated him, astonishingly, from his brutal captors and ultimately led him to the United States, where he later became a senior White House aide.

Golden Bones is an extraordinary story of almost unimaginable hardship and remarkable courage by a survivor whose triumph over terror and adversity serves as a shining inspiration to us all.

    " This is not your typical survivors story. Sichan Siv transformed his chilling encounter with the underside of human nature to become a force for good. This truly extraordinary book is filled with hope, courage and the spirit of freedom. "

    " Very awkward writing but the story is fascinating. I guess you can say it's refreshing he didn't use a ghost writer? It's skimmable so you can get through the awkward parts and enjoy the story. "

    " Four stars for fascinating. Siv's success in his chosen new country - the USA - is every bit as spellbinding as his escape from Cambodia "

    " I could not get over the photograph of the author on the back cover of the book. The first chapter confirmed his arrogance in my opinion, describing something about his name, or being the golden child? I can't quite remember what he said, but I couldn't get past it and try to finish the book. "
