Read this book!

Well, at least think about reading this book.  It's beautifully written, and provides a peek into a culture most of know nothing about.  It will give you a deeper understanging of what it is like to be a stranger in a strange land, clinging to a culture that has been all but destroyed.  I was mesmerized by the writing, the story and the journey. 

A quote from the author:

"I dream that one day soon my book will be published, and it will show the world one more way into words. I dream that this book will have the power to give value to all the dreams I’ve collected along the way, not just my own, but those that were planted inside of me by my grandmother, my people, and the hard lives we’ve had all along history’s forsaken trails. I dream the writing dream: to live in language forever, to unravel the human story and grant it the power to change human life.”

This would be a wonderful book for a book group to read and discuss, or for a young adult

Here's the link on Amazon.  The book is available in paperback and in a Kindle edition.

This book was one of five chosen for the discussion group series at my library last fall. I don't usually make the discussions, but I usually try to read the books as they are usually not ones I would pick up on my own. I really enjoyed this one and learned a lot about the Hmong culture. Glad you liked it too.

Thanks for the tip, Pat! I've added the title to my ever-growing-not-going-to-live-long-enough-to-read list. ;-)
