Summary
"The family institution is revered in Chinese culture, but the historical reality of Chinese Americans has seen family bonds denied, fragmented, or imperiled. [This book] uses this history from the bachelor society of the gold rush era to laws against interracial marriage to the recent wave of adopted baby girls to create a portrait of a community whose line of descent is broken, yet which has tenaciously persisted, as much through love as by blood ... [Davies] uses each of these stories--three inspired by real historical characters--to examine the process of becoming not only Chinese American, but American"--
