About the Author:

Stuart Nicholls was raised on a small farm near Wheaton, Illinois. He served as a combat infantryman in Vietnam from 1965-1966. After graduating from the University of Hawaii with a B.S. in Tropical Agriculture and a minor in Vietnamese Studies, Nicholls returned to Vietnam in 1987. Later he became one of the very first veterans to live in Vietnam after the war. While there, he helped build medical clinics, taught English, assisted the Vietnamese Department of Agriculture, ran veteran tours, and helped the Amerasian orphans. He was finally deported for seeking American POW’s and MIA’s. He lives on his carnation farm in Maui.

Review:

"Five stars (out of five)"
Nicholls is a fine writer who seamlessly employs a non-linear technique in which lengthy chapters about Dwyer's post-war (Vietnam) visits are interspersed with horrific stories of combat that fuel his PTSD. This excellent work of creative nonfiction will find a welcome audience among those who favor wartime accounts, and will hopefully comfort those still fighting their own PTSD-induced battles.  Fore Word Clarion Reviews

"This writer's re-creations of experience during the American war in Vietnam have great power and poignancy--the beauty of the Vietnamese people and of their culture.The writing is rich and good...these excellent passages...deserve to be written and shared for sure.    Honorable Mention Award by the 2013 Aloha Writers Conference writing contest judging panel."
