Summary
  • Taylor is a rebellious teenager with a habit of sneaking out to hang with his anti-war friends, so in January 1968 his mother drags him off to Saigon where his father is attached to the United States embassy; bored (and still rebellious) Taylor sneaks out of the embassy to watch the Tet celebrations, just as the war erupts all over Vietnam and there he is captured by the North Vietnamese Army and sent North as a prisoner and hostage--and during the brutal journey Taylor is forced to confront the realities of war and survival for the first time in his sheltered life
  • January, 1968. When Taylor Sorenson's mother drags him to Saigon to visit his dad-- who's stationed at the US embassy-- Taylor is bored out of his skull. During an embassy dinner the rebellious teen sneaks out to see the Tet celebrations in the city, and is captured by the North Vietnamese Army. Realizing he could be an important bargaining chip, the NVA want to move Taylor to the North. The only way there is the Ho Chi Ming Trail, a series of dangerous paths that snake from South Vietnam through Laos and Cambodia. On the trip Taylor is forced to confront the true cost of war, and what it really means to survive. -- adapted from jacket
