An excellent book! Chau Li lived in the mountains of Vietnam. He watched his father being tortured to death by the Viet Cong, while being kept in a small “box.” When an American prisoner is brought to their village and put in the same box, Chau Li knows that he can’t let this man die too. Chau Li risks his live to save David, and soon the two develop a strong friendship. But the the horror of the war rises up again.

Chau Li’s courage and sacrifice is admirable. The horrors and confusions of war are illustrated througout the book. As far as I know, there’s no sequel to this book, but there should be.

  1. I remember reading this book when I was a kid. I have been searching for a copy for several years. It is an amazing story that crosses cultural barriers and I would recommend it highly

  2. Chris,

    Thanks for your comment. It was an amazing story. I checked this book out from the Kent District Libraries — http://www.kdl.org I couldn’t find it on Amazon, so I didn’t provide a link.
