Marc Kaufman wrote in Smithsonian magazine, "No group of refugees has been less prepared for modern American life than the Hmong, and yet none has succeeded more quickly in making itself at home here... Enrich your readers' global understanding by providing them with this rich collection on the Hmong Immigrant experience. Editor Kaarin Alisa has compiled several compelling essays that express the problems, successes, and issues encountered during migration to America. Readers will learn about when the Hmong fled Laos, difficulty in assimilating in America, farm enterprise success, gang problems, and how females experienced a whole new life in America. An entire chapter offers detailed biographies on notable Hmong immigrants including war veteran Vang Pao, member of Minnesota Congress Mee Moua, rapper Tou Ger Xiong, and entrepreneur Bill Yang.
