Symonds (anthropology, Brown U.) went to a Hmong village in Thailand in the late 1980s to study childbearing practices. She discusses Hmong cosmology as a balance of opposites; mothers, daughters and wives; birth as the journey to the land of light; death as the journey to the land of darkness; and power, gender, and the cycle of life.

Patricia V. Symonds is adjunct associate professor of anthropology at Brown University. She is the coauthor (with Brooke G. Schoepf) of HIV/AIDS: The Global Pandemic and Struggles for Control.Review:
"The book is a gold mine of information for American social scientists and professionals interested in the traditional culture of the Hmong American population... The book is greatly enhanced by photographs and line drawings of Hmong families, homes, ceremonies, and altars, as well as translations of songs and chants. It is a 'must have' for libraries with collections on Southeast Asia, Hmong refugees, Hmong Americans, and women's studies."--Choice
