From Coffee House Press:

ONE HMONG FAMILY’S HARROWING ESCAPE FROM WAR IN LAOS TO THE UNCERTAINTY OF A NEW HOME AS REFUGEES IN MINNESOTA.

Yang’s award-winning memoir of her family’s harrowing escape from war in Laos is a love letter to her grandmother, a troubling portrait of the consequences of us intervention in Southeast Asia, and a glimpse into the little-seen exodus of the Hmong people, first to refugee camps in Thailand and then, for many, to new homes in Minnesota.
