War rescue

Last Airlift: A Vietnamese Orphan's Rescue from War
by Marsha Forchuk Skrypuch

Last Airlift describes the Canadian airlift operation that brought 57 Vietnamese babies and children from Saigon to Toronto on April 13, 1975. One of these children was eight-year-old Tuyet. Through her eyes, readers share in her experience of living in an orphanage and going on a strange and frightening journey. Her gradual adjustment to a new city and a different culture is described with humour and respect.

An emotional and worthy read.
