On Gold Mountainby Lisa See
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
A family history tracing the route of the author's great- grandfather from his Chinese village to the United States, where he married a white woman and overcame the odds to become one of the richest Chinese people on "Gold Mountain," the Chinese name for the US. See's story is both particular and universal, using family anecdotes and historical documents to tell of her relatives and to illuminate the Chinese experience in a country that's ambivalent about its immigrants. Includes many references, but no index.
