Remember the Cambodian refugee border camps in Thailand? Margot Grant does. Having
spent eight years there in the 80s, working mostly in Site 2 which at the time was
the second largest Cambodian city on the planet, Grant has compiled a personal memoir
of her experiences - the ups, the downs, the ins, the outs. Titled Bamboo and Barbed
Wire, the near-300 page work chronicles her tale of what started out as an adventure
for a 56-year-old suburban housewife from Western Australia and turned into, according
to Grant, "an overwhelming emotional and spiritual experience".
