Legends of the Promised Land
by Xuan-Lan Nguyen

Legends of the Promised Land is a passionate memoir focused on the forced immigration of a Vietnamese family to the United States following the Vietnam War and rise of communism in their homeland. In her own words, traditional aphorism, and the voices of her children and husband, the matriarch of the family describes their admirable capture of the American Dream, beginning with her—the first—arrival in the US.
