With the opening of the west in North America, many Chinese left great hardship behind to work in the gold mines, on farms, and on the railroads. This fascinating account of their early contributions and the prejudice they faced is highlighted with full-color artwork and eyewitness accounts. Detailed maps show where they settled and how their traditions are still celebrated today.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Chinese (We Came to North America)?

An informative loook at the Chinese in North America  Aug 28, 2002
"The Chinese," by Lorien Kite, is part of the "We Came to North America" series of books for young readers. The book tells the story of people of Chinese heritage in North America. The book is illustrated with many photographs (both black-and-white and full color). The main text is supplemented with maps, sidebar articles, a glossary, and an index. Vocabulary words are boldfaced in the text: "immigration," "pictographs," "scholar," etc.

Kite begins with an overview of Chinese history and culture. The text covers many topics: the great wave of 19th century immigration, Chinese work on North American railroads, the impact of anti-Chinese sentiment, the historic immigration station at Angel Island, the growth of urban Chinatowns, and more. There is a brief section on the contributions of famous North Americans of Chinese heritage. Overall, an informative and visually compelling book.
