A Vietnam War veteran and a Vietnam War-era civilian revisit their history and follow a journey toward understanding of each other and of the war and country that shaped their lives.

Five years, multiple revisions, two trips to Vietnam, long hours of memory, stories, and soul-searching.

This book is like no other. It brings together past and present, veteran and civilian, man and woman, war and anti-war, the United States and Vietnam. It speaks to the Vietnam generation and to those that come after.
