From School Library Journal:

Gr 6-10-Takaki presents a picture of the Chinese American experience in the 20th century through letters and writings as well as oral histories, conversations, speeches, and songs. A brief introductory chapter describes the group's immigration and living patterns in the U.S. in the latter part of the 19th century. The author then discusses such topics as the growth of Chinatowns and the lives of children within them. A concluding chapter records immigration after 1965. The well-written, absorbing text, adapted from the author's adult work, Strangers from a Different Shore (Little, 1989), is set in a pleasing, open format with many vintage black-and-white photos, some of which are fuzzy but almost all are interesting. The emphasis on first-person accounts and lifestyles distinguishes this work from William Daley's The Chinese Americans (Chelsea, 1988).-Diane S. Marton, Arlington County Library, VA
