In the struggling and war torn land of Laos in the 1960s, the Hmong people of Laos were being invaded by the North Vietnamese army. The Incredible Journey to America will take you on a journey about the Hmong people in Laos through the eyes of a Hmong girl, Kaying. From running village to village, hiding in the deep jungles, and trekking through dangerous terrain, each day was very uncertain.

This riveting journey will take you from some of the lowest points of poverty in Laos to a satisfying story of redemption and finding a new beginning in the United States.
