In the aftermath of The Killing Fields

May 26th, 2016

In 1980, Elaine Harvey, as a nurse, worked for the International Red Cross in the Cambodian refugee camps after the fall of the brutal Khmer Rouge regime which inspired her first book of creative non-fiction Encounters on the Front Line: A Memoir (Promontory Press 2015). In this journey Harvey met the new face of Cambodia and the people on the front lines – the human rights activists, the caregivers, and those who needed care. To quote Harvey “I was not a victim of war, poverty, or starvation, but I was a witness. As a witness, I came to understand that front lines test how far we will go, how much we will give and how deep we will travel.” Encounters on the Front Line explores the concerns of our common humanity and connections made in a disconnected world.  978-1-927559-66-6 $19.99
