The Hmong diaspora straddles the mountains ranges of Southern China, Vietnam, Laos, and Thailand. Through refugee migration it has crossed the oceans to the United States, Europe, Australia, and South America. As the decades of war and trauma come to an end, and the younger generation embraces the benefits of modern life, it is doubtful Hmong traditional life will survive the peace.
In this book, Robert Cooper and his research team, includiing Gary Yia Lee, among the world's leading authories on the Hmong people, have recorded traditional life as it was and as it remains in the more remote locations, offering readers a privileged glimpse into a unique, endangered lifestyle.
