Narrator David Lee Huynh imbues Johnson's tale of deep-seated racism, ecological disaster, corporate malfeasance, and social activism with gravitas. With a measured tone, Huynh describes the intertwined stories that comprise this audio--a post-Vietnam War backlash against Vietnamese refugee fishermen in Texas's Galveston Bay and an environmental crusade against the region's mammoth petrochemical companies. Huynh's narration is full of restrained emotion as he recounts the horrific treatment that many Vietnamese families endured, including the burning of their homes and boats, and threatening visits from the Ku Klux Klan. As a first-generation Vietnamese American, Huynh draws upon his knowledge of the language, providing listeners with authentically pronounced Vietnamese words and names. Listeners will be enthralled by this timely story, thoughtfully told. S.A.H. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2022]
