A Good Scent From a Strange Mountain Background

A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain is a collection of short stories written by Robert Olen Butler documenting the lives of Vietnamese immigrants in the United States of America. It was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1993.

The stories focus mainly on the cultural differences between Vietnam and the United States and are each narrated from the point of view of a different Vietnamese immigrant in Louisiana. The stories were originally published in various journals but were later compiled and re-published with two additional stories in 2001.
