Noynah was born in Kamalasai, a small sleepy Isaan village on the outskirts of Kalasin in the North-East of Thailand on the 1st of September 1958 she was the only daughter of Simon and Nooch Kwanchalerm. They were simple folk living on a small farm that was no bigger than four ‘rai’ of land of which he had inherited from his father. Just after Noynah’s third birthday her mother was gathering firewood in a nearby rain forest when she was bitten by a snake, a deadly poisonous Monocled Cobra and she died as a consequence, her father did his best to bring Noynah up single-handed and this is her story.
