"A folk art masterpiece from a Southeast Asian culture stands at the center of this thoughtful book. Intricately composed, painstakingly stitched by hand, the ""story cloth"" of the title was created by the author's aunt and uncle, Hmong who fled their native Laos for a refugee camp in Thailand. The story cloth records their experiences-which are also the author's own. Using details from the cloth as illustrations, Cha retells her life story, a meeting of Hmong history and a classic American immigration tale. Now an anthropologist in Colorado, Cha spent her early years during the 1960s in a Hmong village in Laos, where her family worked long days growing rice and corn. War tore the country apart; Cha's father was killed and she and her mother made a dangerous escape to Thailand, emigrating to the United States in 1979. The text is subdued; it is the needlework that drives home the poignancy of this cataclysmic account. For advanced readers, a lengthy afterword, by Joyce Herold, Denver Museum of Natural History's curator of ethnology, sets out historical background and assesses the story cloth as an art form.

After reading Dia's Story Cloth, I felt inspired by the bravery of the Hyong people and how they preserved times of war and civil unrest within their country. I also enjoyed the detail of the illustrations that captured the historical events of the time and showed the precision that went into creating these cloths. Dia's family was able to leave Thailand because her father bravely fought with the American army against the Communist army. However, she and her family kept the importance of the story cloths alive by educating their families. I found it inspiring that Dia returned to Thailand to work with refugee families. I thought that the story didn't go into as much detail as I would have liked, so I appreciated the excerpt at the end that gave more information and historical accounts. Overall, I thought this book had a great message and accomplished the goal of educating readers about the Hyong history and their intricate cloth work. ( )

Beautiful, gentle introduction to the Hmong people and their history. The story is similar to other refugee stories, but the illustrations (all come from a Hmong story cloth) are breathtaking and add authenticity and emotion to the author's voice. Recommended! ( )

This non-fiction book is about a young lady, Dia, from the mountains of Laos and her struggles to get to the Land of The Free, America. She talks about the Hmong Culture and how it emigrated from China to different Asian Countries because China had originally wanted to change the Hmong Culture and the Hmong people would not have it. The Hmong people emigrated to different Asian Countries; Laos, Thailand, Burma, to continue their culture the way they wanted too. Dia's family in particular emigrated to Laos, where her family built a house made out of wood and bamboo. They would walk 2 hours away to farm for survival and walk 2 hours back to get home. During this time, their village was in the middle of a warfare between America and Communists. In order to avoid the war, Dia's family had to cross the Mekong River where multiple lives of Hmong people died trying to cross. When Dia and her family were safely evacuated over to American soil, she was 15 years old and did not know any English at all. This book was very emotional and inspiring. It showed a lot of interesting facts of the Hmong Culture and an overview of one's journey to the United States. The illustrations were paintings from the Hmong Cloth that her uncle had sewed. The Hmong Cloth is a hand-sewn cloth, the illustrations on the cloth tells a story. As the illustrations in this book, the Hmong Cloth was closely copied and drawn into the book. The text of the book is long but it is also not hard to understand. This book enriches the Hmong Culture and the journey Dia and her family had to go through for freedom. ( )
