Author's Background to Leaving it Behind as described by Ruth Downing

John McCoy is a person with a dream of telling the story of the people he came to know and love from the past to the present. He understands the various cultures of the Vietnamese people and he understands the difficulties of their survival after a horrifyingly destructive conflict called the Vietnam War.
He was working in Vietnam when he started writing this book and I became his sounding board for ideas. Many of the characters are based on the lives of real people, their dreams, hopes and struggles to survive. But the one thing that the author has been able to capture in this book is the acceptance of the people, and the willingness of the people to look at life on its own terms in the aftermath of war.
As chapter after chapter left the keyboards of creativity, I came to understand the importance of the story, and of the people being portrayed. The Montagnards are real and little is known to the outside world about these warriors. The author knew them and respected them for who are. More importantly, he respected their past.
This book, although imaginary, was created to portray people and events as possibly seen in the real world. The plots and subplots are based on greed casting a shadow over the reputation of bankers, and the setup of the drug cartels emanating from the Vietnam War.
Only time will tell if the bankers were part of the plot coming out of a war that damaged the lives of so many people.
