Vinh Chung’s powerful and poignant memoir, Where the Wind Leads, follows Vinh and his family on their journey from pre-war Vietnam, through pirate attacks on a lawless sea, to a miraculous rescue by a World Vision boat and a new home in Fort Smith, Arkansas. There Vinh struggled against poverty, discrimination, and a bewildering language barrier, yet still managed to graduate from Harvard Medical School.

Where the Wind Leads is Chung’s reminder to people everywhere that the American dream, while still possible, carries with it a greater responsibility.
