"This survey of Hmong history and culture answers a keenly felt need for a study that combines comprehensive coverage with concise scope." -- C. T. Yates, Earlham CollegeĀ 
There are roughly about ten million Hmong world-wide. Most Hmong today live in China, Laos, northern Vietnam, Thailand, and Burma and are all believed to be descendants of Hmong who originally lived in central China. Since 1975, over one hundred thousand of Hmong have resettled in the U.S. as a result of the Indochina China War and the Secret War in Laos.
Hmong: History of a People is a detailed rediscovery of their rich heritage, following Hmong history and tradition from their early settlements in China, up to and including much of their contribution to the war in Vietnam. It is a book of struggle prowess, and magic, and reiterates the importance of cultural memory.
