Written by Carina Hoang
The years 1975 to 1996 were witness to the largest mass migration in modern history when more than a million people left war-torn Vietnam by boat in search of safety. Thousands perished when their boats fell apart en route, others succumbed to starvation, dehydration and cold-blooded attacks by Thai pirates.
Combining autobiographical accounts from survivors with evocative images and ephemera from the time, this book is a moving account of the boat people experience.
