The story is very strange to everybody, especially to the ones who have not lost the freedom. The readers would ask themselves, "Is it the real life story?" The Road to Freedom is too hard and risky. The dear price to pay for freedom is the life of the author and all the people who want to get there. The story is very attractive and amazes the reader from beginning to end. Kevin Dinh- Former captain ARVN. After reading your true story, "THE ROAD TO FREEDOM", I know that many times you were confronted with powerful, bad authorities and fearlessly faced danger to save or help weak and poor people. You have acted chivalrously; you can be proud, and we also can be proud of you. This story lets everyone know about a black period of Vietnam's history. San Jose, California, July 2, 2001. TOAN VO, Author's father. Many times, your unsubmissive, stubborn attitude may have endangered your life. Many parts of the story scare me to death. Viet Lien t Dinh Author's mother The past has been written into many interesting forms: politics, suspense, martial arts, poems, romantic, adventure, and artistic drawing.

Pig Boy's Wicked Bird

A Memoir

Author: Doug Crandell

Publisher: Chicago Review Press

ISBN: 1556529880

Category: Biography & Autobiography

Page: 272

View: 6318

This gritty tragicomic memoir is set in one memorable year--1976, the Bicentennial, when Jimmy Carter ran for president and seven-year-old Doug Crandell lost two fingers in a farming accident. More than anything, Doug wants to shed his nickname, Pig Boy, and grow up to be a hog man like his father. His older brother Derrick reads pulp novels to him each night as he soaks his remaining fingers in Epsom salts. His brothers urge him to "flip the Wicked Bird" any time another child makes fun of his "lobster-red hand." Doug shares his summer of healing in Wabash, Indiana, with humans and animals who've suffered life-changing traumas: a brutal grandfather gentled by stroke, a deaf dog with a deadly taste for pig's ears, a tough-love mother coping with depression, a bevy of runt piglets saved from extermination. This is a story of love, loss, healing, and a family's relation with the land they love and know that they will lose.
