"The account of Dr. Chung and his family will inspire you to believe in second chances and miracles and the God who gives them both." - Max Lucado, New York Times bestselling authorMy name is Vinh Chung.This is a story that spans two continents, ten decades, and eleven thousand miles.When I was three and a half years old, my family was forced to flee Vietnam in June 1979, to a place we had never heard of somewhere in the heartland of America.Several weeks later, my family lay half-dead from dehydration in a derelict fishing boat jammed with ninety-three refugees lost in the middle of the South China Sea. We arrived in the United States with nothing but the clothes on our backs and unable to speak a single word of English.Today my family holds twenty-one university degrees.How we got from there to here is quite a story.Where the Wind Leads is the remarkable account of Vinh Chung and his refugee family's daring escape from communist oppression for the chance of a better life in America. It's a story of personal sacrifice, redemption, endurance against almost insurmountable odds, and what it truly means to be American.
