    " Knowing I lived through the Vietnam War and read about it every day in the news, this book was real to me. The author wrote realistic descriptions of what life was like for the Hmong people that assisted the Americans trying to overcome the Vietcong. Escaping and crossing the MeKong Delta in the dead of night with snipers nearby, was very moving. What a marvelous job the author did to vividly explain her family trials to make it to America. "
