Many Americans have not heard of the Hmong people. Dr. Lo provides a study of the history of the Hmong that led to their seeking refuge in America. Most people are unaware of the "secret war" that took place in the mountains of Laos during the Vietnam War and the role of the Hmong played as U.S. allies. This study is a classic example of the American immigration experience despite the fact that the Hmong had so many obstacles to overcome.
