Escape to Gold Mountain: A Graphic History of the Chinese in North America

David H.T. Wong


This is a bright picture historical past of the chinese language adventure in North the US during the last one hundred fifty years, starting with the immigration of chinese language to "Gold Mountain" (the chinese language colloquialism for North the US) within the 1800s that led to many years of discrimination, subjugation, and separation from household. in keeping with ancient files and interviews with elders, the ebook can also be the epic tale of the Wong relations as they traverse those demanding situations with desire and backbone, growing an immigrant's legacy of their new domestic of North America.

David H.T. Wong is an architect and historian.
