Here is the book synopsis from Goodreads:
A Hmong Boy s Story One of the universal truths about the human race is the desire to have a better life for their children. Yakao Yang in his just released book A Hmong Boy s Story takes us back to the mountains in Laos where he struggled to get an education with the support and encouragement of his parents. The backdrop of this story is a country at war and the Hmong people constantly moving from place to place to find a safe place to live. Yang is able to weave the Hmong traditions, folk tales and everyday life of the people into the story of his struggle to get an education. His commitment and focus allow him to eventually graduate with a baccalaureate degree with a year of training in France. Upon the fall of the country to the Communists, the family entered the refugee camps in Thailand and finally came to America. Yang gives an insight that no other Hmong person can, since education was not considered important at the time. It is that education that opens our window to the past.
