Spirit of Survival â€“ Gail Sheehyâ€™s journalistic assignment was to write a story on Cambodian refugee children. In Cambodia, she met Phat Mohm and extracted her from the horrors to which she had already been exposed. Mohm, as a little girl, had already survived her entire family. Mohm is confronted with a totally new world; learning English, making friends, forgetting despair. More than a survivor, Mohm is a winner. Unforgettable and beautifully written with solid historical back ground, this is an in-depth study of the cost of human survival.
