Laos refugee Touayim Thoj tells his first-hand account of his escape from war in The Long Journey: A Refugee Boy’s Story from Laos to Minnesota ($19.95, paperback, 9781545673720; $9.99, e-book, 9781545673737).

Thoj’s father worked hard as a village council delegate in Laos, but was eventually forced to flee from his home. After years of running, Thoj eventually spent two years in bad conditions in the Ban Vinai Refugee Camp in neighboring Thailand. Finally, he was able to come to the U.S. as part of the minor refugee program and begin a new life.

“Readers will find how the war in Laos affected our lives, physically and psychologically, during and after the war was over,” said Thoj.

Touayim Thoj graduated from high school in Saint Paul, MN, served in the Iraqi War with the U.S. Navy and earned his Bachelor’s degree from Winona State University.
