Dia's Story Cloth Hmong American author interprets the embroidered story cloth sent to her by an aunt and uncle from their refugee camp in Thailand; it tells a visual narrative of her people's flight to freedom and life as refugees, and forms a moving tribute to their family history. The whole story cloth and individual scenes from it are reproduced in exquisite detail. An afterword gives background information on historical events and local artistic needlework traditions.
