Trails through the Mists


Hidden mountain trails and back roads of Laos would carry waves of Hmong forced to flee to avoid the killing and terror of a war that wasn't even their war. In the end, the only hope lay in a desperate midnight crossing of the Mekong river to the partial safety of a Thai refugee camp and the promise of an American man. This is the story of Houa, her family, her friends, and her enemies. It begins in Hoi Hung on that day in March. It stops--or at least it pauses--in 1975 in Camp Nong Khay in Thailand. An inside look at a people, a place, and a war that most of us know little about.
