The Latecomer

I just finished reading an AMAZING book about the Hmong experience chronicled from Laos to Thailand and finally to the US. The book was written by the cousin of two of my advisees and it is so eloquently written. This book is for anyone who wants to know more about their Hmong students and their family history AND for people who already think they know their Hmong students. You will learn so much more about your students and why/how they are who they are.
