Description of Resource

Journey with Ah Mu and Pohkwa from a refugee camp to their new home -- and new life -- in America.  As Ah Mu weaves a blouse for her daughter, she describes the experiences of exploring a strange city, taking English lessons, working in a factory and becoming a mother.  Listening to these stories, Hsar Wah is inspired by her parents' courage and strength in the face of many new challenges.  [Description taken from source].
