The Latehomecomer: A Hmong Family Memoir
In search of a place to call home, thousands of Hmong families made the journey from the war-torn jungles of Laos to the overcrowded refugee camps of Thailand and onward to America, but their history remains largely unknown. Driven to share her family's story after her grandmother's death, Kao Kalia Yang's memoir is tribute to the remarkable woman whose spirit held them all together. Born in Thailand's Ban Vinai Refugee Camp, Yang immigrated to St. Paul, Minnesota when she was only six years old. With a journalist's heart for truth and a storyteller's gift for lyricism, Yang describes her family's harrowing escape from laos, their life in the refugee camps, the hardships and the great joy of caring for a growing family in a new land, and her own experiences with American life and learning.
