Along the ancient Silk Road where Europe, Asia, and Russia converge stands the six-thousand-year-old homeland of a peaceful ethnic minority, the Uyghurs. Their culture is filled with music, dance, family, and a love of tradition passed down through the ages. Today there are approximately twenty million Uyghurs worldwide.
This remarkable autobiography traces the life of their transcendent leader Rebiya Kadeer from her humble beginnings to her position as an indomitable world figure struggling for Uyghur human rights in the face of the communist domination of The People’s Republic of China.
Rebiya Kadeer is past president of the World Uyghur Congress and the Uyghur American Association. She is devoted to the principles of non-violence and is affectionately known as the “mother of the Uyghur nation.”
Alexandra Cavelius is a journalist and author covering human rights.
