Hmong Poetry Book: Where the Torches are Burning

Where the Torches Are Burning is a first collection of poems and prose by a Hmong poet living in California’s Central Valley. It movingly chronicles his dangerous travel with his people from Laos to the United States. It continues as an account of love and family and identity in the poet’s new land. A prose account of how Moua composes and relates to his places-on-earth makes a valuable closing to the book
