Description

This affecting true account tells the story of Long, an Amerasian, and his struggle to survive in war-torn Vietnam, his dramatic escape to America as part of "Operation Babylift" during the last chaotic days before the fall of Saigon, and his life in the United States as "Matt," part of a loving Ohio family. "Lavishly illustrated with archival photographs, the narrative is interspersed with just the right amount of war history, never losing the focus on Long and his experiences and ratcheting up the emotional intensity as he lifts off from Vietnam and lands in Chicago." Kirkus Reviews "The child-at-war story and the facts about the Operation Babylift rescue are tense and exciting . . . Fascinating." Starred,Booklist "Contains bright and even heroic moments." Publishers Weekly
