Laos: Caught In The Web The Vietnam War Years
by Rantala, Judy
About This Book
The small nation of Laos was little known to most Westerners when the author and her husband, a USAID worker, moved to Laos in 1971.
Befriended by two young Laotians, the author became a part of village life, joining in holiday celebrations, weddings, funerals and feasts. Over a four-year period, she developed a deep admiration and affection for the Lao people. The humour and pathos of these chaotic years before the Communist takeover of the government in 1975 are chronicled by following one Lao family in Communist-controlled re-education camps, to their eventual resettlement in the United States.
