This is a historical fiction novel depicting the life of a Native American youth, Boyd Barfoot, during the Vietnam War era. His struggles, accomplishments and undying love for a Vietnamese girl, Mia Lee, will test every emotion.
Boyd’s near-death experiences while fighting in South Vietnam and Cambodia parallel many of the ones American war veterans take to their graves. Several of the events in this book were altered from true happenings. Woven within the chapters of this novel are the factual causes leading up to the Vietnam War. Two of Boyd’s spine-tingling adventures are attempting to end Vietcong attacks of U.S. troops near Saigon and the rescue of POW’s in Cambodia. PFC Barfoot earns the Medal of Honor for heroism.
This book is recommended for those of high school age and older. Additional, signed copies of the novel can be ordered through the author’s website: www.booksbydavenport.com.
