where can I buy this book?
This book is not about writing with second hand information from hundreds of references. The author clearly wrote this book from the heart and an authoritative perspective. He claims to not know everything about Hmong culture, which is precisely what a true Hmong would do -- being humble. He did a phenomenal job at contextualizing a complex culture and bringing it to a level where the read can actually understand.
