To Destroy You Is No Loss: The Odyssey of a Cambodian Family
Often called "The Cambodian Diary of Anne Frank"A story of remarkable courage, fortitude, and dignity in the face of adversity. TO DESTROY YOU IS NO LOSS follows one Cambodian family's struggle to survive four years of unprecedented brutality and wanton destruction during the Khmer Rouge regime. Featuring fifteen-year-old Teeda, it is the true story of the four generation Butt family's efforts to stay alive, and their eventual terror-filled escape attempts from a war-ravaged, famine-riddled nation. Many educators and reviewers describe this first-person biography as "The Cambodian Diary of Anne Frank," because it too is the story of a young woman faced with a holocaust. Despite overriding terror and exhaustion during her incredible escape attempts, Teeda finds happiness: romantic love blossoming for the first time, a full belly, pride in the former glory of her country when she views fabled Angkor Wat, a sense of excitement and thanksgiving for a chance to be free, and finally the security of a Thai refugee camp and eventual freedom in California. The sequel, BAMBOO & BUTTERFLIES: From Refugee to Citizen continues Teeda's incredible odyssey in America as she makes the difficult transition from traumatized refugee to contributing citizen. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
