Synopsis: Christie and Michael are visiting their grandparents' old store outside Oakland, California. For years they've heard stories from Auntie Mei about a mysterious room hidden somewhere in the store, but although they've looked, no one has ever found it. Its just a story. Or so they think, until the day they actually discover the hidden room. Hoping to find treasure, Christie and Michael find that they stumbled across letters written by early Chinese pioneers during the California Gold Rush. The letters offer a treasure that Christie and Michael never imagined.

With flashbacks that take them back in time to the lives of the letter writers, Christie and Michael "meet" some of the earliest Chinese immigrants and discover a rich sense of their own history and heritage as Chinese Americans.

About the Author: Debbie Leung Yamada has been married to Tommy for 23 years and resides in Long Beach, California. They have two teenagers, Christie and Michael. Debbie graduated from the University of California, Irvine and received her B.A. in Art History. She earned her M.A. in Asian Art History from the University of Hawaii. In addition to maintaining a part-time craft business, Debbie works part-time with "Meet the Masters". This job entails going into the public schools and giving art history lectures to students ranging from kindergarten to 6th grade. Debbie enjoys playing volleyball and walking her dog, Snoopy.
