Description


From Beaver Creek to Hanoi: A Mother's Quest to Rescue Her Son is a story of a resolute woman who over the course of three years worked zealously to get her son, a fighter pilot shot down during a bombing raid, out of a prisoner of war camp during the Vietnam War. Minnie Lee Gartley, a history teacher who lived in Maine and stayed in Dunedin, Florida during the school year, joined letter writing campaigns, gave speeches, testified in front of congressional hearings, traveled with prominent peace organization members to meet with other women from Southeast Asia, and ultimately went on a risky journey to Hanoi. This story caused a controversy when it happened and still stirs debate today. What would you do for a child of yours in danger?
