Riassunto: Many of you might remember the war in Vietnam which occurred between 1962 and 1975. But, what many people don't realize is that another war raged at the same time ...right next door in Cambodia. Communist rebels influenced by Mao Tse Tung, wanted to take control of the country, whereas Ho Chi Minh, the North Vietnamese leader wanted to take control of Cambodia.             The Vietnamese civil war led to the Cambodian Genocide. More than 3 million people perished during this killing field between 1975 and 79. There were put into labor camps much like Auschwitz. they were tortured, they were worked to death, they were starved, they were executed...... they were exterminated.             The educated people were especially targeted. Through propaganda. anyone who was not a "farmer" was named the enemy. They were the ones to blame for everything that was wrong in the world. It came to the point where merely wearing glasses was a crime punishable by death.              My father was a prominent member of the national government. He was asked to negotiate with a troupe of Khmer Rouge (Khmer Communist) leaders, invited them to dinner at our house. He was excited when the dinner was over, "NOTHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN AS LONG AS I LIVE, " assured my father. He didn't know he was lied to. The Genocide was at the door.             I can't describe the pain and heartbreak I lived through watching my very proud father sacrifice for me always clinging to the hope we would return home soon and AMERICA WOULD RESCUE US.  And him finally succumbing to starvation and malaria or what it felt as I held his frail body in my arms as he took his last breath.  America never came. --- No one did!
 
The memory of seeing my husband walking by, and then disappearing from my sight forever, has been a shock remaining until now. At least I was prepared for his loss, though he was not. I felt his fear, his pain. The Khmer Rouge tortured him to death. I felt his voice screaming for help in the darkness. I felt he was thinking of me; how to say Good Bye, and how it felt to die.
 
America never came. ----No one did!
 
Many people didn't know Americans dropped 100,000 tons of bombs on the Ho Chi Minh trail that ran along Laos, Cambodia and South Vietnam. This trail was used by North Vietnamese as a route for weapon to fight with America. The number of dropped bombs is equal 5 times of bombs they dropped in Hiroshima's.
 
"President Nixon and Mr. Kissinger unleashed 100,000 tons of bombs, the equivalent of 5 Hiroshima. The bombing was their personal decision; they illegally and secretly, they bombed Cambodia, a neutral country, back to the Stone Age." - By John Pilger

                 America never came.  ----No one did!

           By reading my book, you walk to a journey, you see through my eyes,  what else that western people really don't know, and what happened when Americans left Cambodia to the hand of the Khmer Rouge regime... Fright, despair, agony, famine, frustration, million teardrops had exceeded the reality. These are the silent death sickness that never leaves Khmer victims of the genocide. 

            

Sinossi: Cambodia is a country with beautiful temples and art, and steeped in the Buddhist religion. Despite this, the once-civilized society turned to violence and proceeded to destroy itself. People betrayed their parents, their children, and their friends. In the process, they extinguished everything that represented the truth and beauty of Cambodia. How does an individual withstand such experiences and resume life after having fought for a single grain of rice and witnessed unbelievable cruelties, such as mothers crushing their babies, young children willing to kill for a morsel of food, and the entire decimation of normal urban life? Bamboo Promise is author Vicheara Houn's story of her survival. This is the remarkable and intensely personal autobiography of a woman raised as the sheltered and privileged only child of a prominent Cambodian family. As a young bride, she and her entire family were swept up in the Cambodian genocide of the 1970s. Houn recounts how she adapted and survived in the harsh killing fields of the Khmer Rouge terrorists in this compelling narrative. Although the author survived many horrors, Bamboo Promise is not a horror story. It is the story of the evolution of a human spirit as she endured a tumultuous upbringing and an unspeakable tragedy. The insights into life after Pol Pot's defeat and Cambodia's subjection by the Communist Vietnamese are particularly unique. Bamboo Promise is also a story of hope, as Houn found lasting happiness in the United States.
