The extraordinary, urgent story of Zoya Phan, a heroic young Burmese woman who has become the leader of her country's pro-democracy movement.
Zoya Phan was born in the remote jungles of Burma. A member of the Karen ethnic group, which has struggled for freedom against the Burmese military dictatorship for almost fifty years, Zoya is a true daughter of the revolution. Her mother was a guerrilla soldier and her father a pro-democracy leader who prayed that Zoya would play a vital role in the fight to free her country.
Zoya's childhood was idyllic: she lived in a bamboo hut on stilts by a river, blissfully removed from the war. But when Zoya was fourteen, Burmese aircraft attacked her village. For ten years, she lived with thousands of refugees hiding in the jungle. Her family scattered - her brothers deeper into the war, Zoya and her sister stuck in the despair of Thai refugee camps.
To escape her enemies in 2005, Zoya fled to the United Kingdom. At a "Free Burma" protest, she was interviewed on BBC "Newsnight," the first of countless interviews, and made her first major public address in 2007. In February 2008, her father was assassinated by an agent of the Burmese regime. Undaunted, Zoya has taken on his and her peoples cause for freedom, meeting with politicians, presidents, and film stars . . . quickly becoming the face of an enslaved nation.
Like Ayaan Hirsi Alis heart-stopping "Infidel," "Undaunted " is a vividly told, inspirational memoir and a clarion call for action. It's the story of a culture almost destroyed, of genocide and terror, and of remarkable courage and determination in the face of one of the world's most brutal military dictatorships.
