Synopsis: A unique story which offers a rare glimpse into the lives of a repressed but dynamic people as they were caught up in one of the most colorful times of our country's history. Beginning with Yee Ah Tye, the book details his travails and triumphs during the California Gold Rush and sheds light on the struggles of an early Chinese immigrant and his family determined to embrace their adopted country despite racial prejudice and harsh exclusionary laws.

The book is richly illustrated with more than 100 photographs, woodcuts, drawings, and maps that trace the Chinese through the years and document the remarkable experiences of the Ah Tye family.

160 pages, 8 ½ x 11; Bibliography, Family Tree, End Notes, Index.
