On Gold Mountain

Subtitled "The One Hundred Year Odyssey of my Chinese-American Family." Nonfiction by Lisa See.

On Gold Mountain: The One-Hundred-Year Odyssey of My Chinese-American Family

This was an exceptionally good book.

Lisa See has taken her own family's history, coupled with her extensive research about Chinese immigration to California, and turned it into a fascinating story.

I would love love LOVE to be able to do this with my own family's story, but I doubt I have the skill.

Plus I doubt my family is as interesting as Lisa See's. If they are, they've definitely concealed it....
