Twenty stories told by Chinese workers, most from Kwantung Province, newly settled in Northern California, passed down orally for generations, translated and collected as a WPA project, and retold by Yep in his own voice. A fascinating glimpse into a part of American history rarely met in children's books. A native of San Francisco, the author has written several children's books about Chinese Americans, including Dragonwings, a 1976 Newbery Honor book. Each story is introducted by a full illustrated title page.
