Product Overview

Ha Pham Kim Nhung, her husband and six children fled their Saigon home destined for the United States to join Ha's mother. After a harrowing, two-week overland trek through Vietnam and Cambodia, the family finally made their way to the refugee camps in Thailand only to find the conditions in the camp nearly intolerable.

This is the powerful and poignant story of their six months' struggle to escape the Communists in Vietnam. The family traveled through the killing fields of Cambodia only to find themselves in the Para refugee camps in Thailand, with their dehumanizing conditions. But all the while the family maintained their strength and love for one another and ultimately joined Ms. Ha's mother in the United States.
