Publisher Comments:

A Chinese immigrant and his son build a flying machine in "an unusual historical novel, unique in its perspective of the Chinese in America and its portrayal of early 20th century San Francisco, including the Earthquake, from an immigrant's viewpoint."--"School Library Journal." 1976 Newbery Honor Book; ALA Notable Children's Books of 1971-1975; 1976 "Boston Globe/Horn Book" Award Honor Book; "New York Times" Outstanding Children's Books 1975; "School Library Journal" Best of the Best 1966-1978.

Synopsis:

Will Windrider take to the skies?

Moon Shadow was eight years old when he sailed from China to join his father, Windrider, in America. For years, Windrider had lived in San Francisco and made his living doing laundry. Father and son had never met.

But over time, Moon Shadow grows to love and respect his father and to believe in his wonderful dream. And Windrider, with Moon Shadow's help, is willing to endure the mockery of the other Chinese, the poverty, the separation from his wife and country — even the great earthquake — to make his dream come true.
