Hmong in America
Journey from a Secret War
Tim Pfaff

Hmong in America tells the dramatic story of one of America's newest groups of immigrants, the Hmong, told through the voices of the people who lived this contemporary history. Their journey begins in the scenic, rugged highlands of Laos, travels through the Vietnam War, pauses in the over-crowded refugee camps of Thailand, and ends with the challenges of resettlement and a new life in America.

Tim Pfaff, curator of public programs at the Chippewa Valley Museum in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, served as principal writer for the team that developed the Hmong in America project.
