  • Author
    Tonya Jone Miller
  • Overview
    In August of 1968, a farm girl from rural Indiana stepped off a plane in Saigon, Vietnam. The people and events that led her there and her subsequent adventures make for an extraordinary tale.

    Stories of the Vietnam conflict have been told by many people: servicemen and women on both sides, government and diplomatic workers, journalists, Vietnamese civilians. Donna Miller was none of these things. She chose to go to Vietnam, alone, in the middle of the war, to teach English at the Buddhist University in Saigon. She ended up doing so much more…
    From being held at gunpoint on her very first night in-country, to adopting an entire family of Vietnamese orphans, Donna’s unique perspective and experiences form a theatrical narrative that is both universal and intensely personal. Hers is not a war story; it’s a life story.
