Product Overview

What would you do with a second life? That's the question that Channing S. Jun, a young medical student from Kanggye, North Korea, found himself asking after a series of unlikely events spared him from certain death at the hands of communist agents during the fall of Seoul, South Korea. Tragically separated from his home and family by the Korean War, Jun embarks on a remarkable journey that brings him from the battlefields of Korea to the United States of the 1950's. With only his mother's teaching to guide him, the penniless medical student overcomes countless obstacles to become a successful American surgeon. From Korea to New Orleans, New York to Texas then North Dakota and finally Georgia, "A Tiger's Hide" takes us along Dr. Jun's exciting journey toward his ultimate American success story. You'll find his recollections delightful and inspiring as he challenges us to savor life and leave behind our own legacy of service and devotion.
