The White Umbrella
by Patricia Elliott

"Suspenseful and intensely moving, no other book captures the tapestry of Asian history quite like The White Umbrella, a dazzling true tale of modern Burma told through the life story of Sao Hearn Hkam, who has been called Princess, Mahadevi, First Lady, Member of Parliament, rebel leader, and refugee. Born into royalty but sold into marriage like a slave, Sao Hearn Hkam fought against tradition, foreign invaders, and the brute power of a crazed general to gain freedom for her people. From the quiet Shan hills of her childhood, to the Presidential Palace in Rangoon, to the halls of power in Asia and Europe, and finally to the violent, drug-riddled netherworlds of the Golden Triangle, her journey is an inspiration and a revelation -- about Burma, about Southeast Asia, and about what happens when the games of the .superpowers impact real life."
