04 Mar / Tales from Gold Mountain: Stories of the Chinese in the New World by Paul Yee, illustrated by Simon Ng [in What Do I Read Next? Multicultural Literature]
A collection of eight original tales that draw on the real-life experiences of the Chinese who immigrated to North America in the latter half of the 19th century during the height of the Gold Rush, the building of the transcontinental railroad, and the settling of the Wild West.
These beautifully illustrated stories capture the spirit of Chinese pioneers who battled prejudice, harsh conditions, and great adversity to endure and survive in the New World.
