Philippa was both intrigued and appalled by Vietnam and she found its people the most beautiful she had ever seen. Vietnamese curiosity in the occult resonated with her, as well as their approach to healing and medicine and she was particularly attracted to their children especially those which were “half-caste”: products of American GIs and Vietnamese women. She then co-founded an organization called the Amerasian Foundation to help these children. By mid-September, Philippa had already decided to write a book about Vietnam. Philippa concluded her first trip to Vietnam in the late autumn of 1966, having spent almost six weeks there, and returned to America for some concerts but realized that she was more inclined into writing. She continued to bash American through her writing.
