Overview

My Treacherous Journey will propel you into the heart -- and unspeakable depths -- of the Korean War and its effects on the poorest civilians. In riveting detail, Kyung Soon Yun relates her life as a child and young adult in Korea, coming to America, and her experiences in her new country. Kyung Soon is the youngest daughter of a Korean family. In her daily struggles to help her family survive the war's devastation, she is encouraged by her mother's wisdom and insight. When her beloved mother dies, Kyung Soon continues valiantly to protect her younger brother and help her father. Her journey becomes bleak but she always draws strength from her mother's wise encouragement. In My Treacherous Journey, Kyung Soon shows her love for Korea -- describing its culture and beauty -- and she shows wonderful insight in describing many of the old ways. Her story includes details of Korean medicine, religion and astrology, family bonds and honor, traditional clothing, housework, agriculture, travel, and the daily struggle for food. For Kyung Soon, these were an ordinary part of the fabric of her life, but they are from a culture that is quickly becoming lost. In this epic story of a young woman's triumph over adversity, we see clearly the resilience and strength of the human spirit.
