Summary
The story of Mai Ya Xiong and her family and their journey from the Ban Vinai refugee camp in Thailand to a new life in Madison, Wisconsin, is extraordinary. Yet it is typical of the stories of the 200,000 Hmong people who now live in the United States and who struggle to adjust to American society while maintaining their own culture as a free people.Mai Ya's Long Journey follows Mai Ya Xiong, a young Hmong woman, from her childhood in Thailand's Ban Vinai Refugee Camp to her current home in Wisconsin. Mai Ya's parents fled Laos during the Vietnam War and were refugees in Thailand for several years before reaching the United States. But the story does not end there. Students will read the challenges Mai Ya faces in balancing her Hmong heritage and her adopted American culture as she grows into adulthood.2006 Cooperative Children's Book Center Choice 2005 Council for Wisconsin Writers Award in Juvenile Nonfiction 2005 First Place in Children's/Juvenile Nonfiction from the Midwest Independent Publishers Association 2005 Honorable Mention in Multicultural Books from the Midwest Independent Publishers Association
