About this title


Surveys Vietnamese immigration to the United States and discusses the contributions made by Vietnamese to various areas of American life.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8 Rutledge gives an overview of the history of Vietnam, the U.S. involvement in the strife-filled country, and the plight of the thousands of people forced by political conditions to leave their homeland. The emphasis is on the refugees' adjustment to American life and a culture vastly different from their own. A final section features people who have adapted and become successful in their new careers. Rutledge's presentation is concise, organized, and objective; however, it is unfortunate that he tells such a poignant story in such a dry textbook style. The human drama is portrayed in the numerous black-and-white photographs showing Vietnamese of all ages on their journey to a new home. James Haskins' The New Americans: Vietnamese Boat People (Enslow, 1980) covers much of the same information in a more readable empathetic style, but has a narrower focus. Muriel Stanek's We Came from Vietnam (Whitman, 1985) focuses on one family's adjustment. All three books emphasize the hopeful future of the ``new Americans'' and their success in blending the two cultures. None address the trauma of the older generation Vietnamese, many of whom have been unable to cope with a life so alien to the one they've known. Heide Piehler, Shorewood Public Lib . , Wis.
