Bajo un árbol milenario
by Vaddey Ratner
Seven-year-old Raami's childhood ended the day her father brought news of the civil war that had overwhelmed the streets of Phnom Penh, Cambodia. While enduring four years of family deaths, starvation, and forced labor, her only respite is the mythical legends and poems told to her by her father. Partly based on the author's personal story, this is a narrative of human resilience. Cambodia, USA.
