This is an important story. The world did not end with the last American helicopter out. Vietnam has found the grace and strength to move forward, and has been joined by caring people like Bruce Logan and Elaine Head, whose volunteer work supports the country’s efforts to alleviate the lingering effects of the war. What they have seen in war and peace is a lesson for all of us.
— George Vecsey, New York Times sports columnist, who visited Vietnam in 1991
A significant book about the reconciliation possible between those who have been cast into bloody conflict; a compelling story of one American veteran and his wife who find purpose by serving in Vietnam, forty years after the war. The renderings of the beauty of my country Vietnam and the warmth of our people are vividly interwoven with heart wrenching images of the poverty and illness that the authors encounter in our humanitarian work.
—Le Ly Hayslip, author of When Heaven & Earth Changed Places, and Child of War, Woman of Peace
