Item description for Dreams of West: A History of the Chinese in Oregon, 1850-1950 by Ooligan Press...

Jointly created by the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association and history students at Portland State University, this bilingual (English/Chinese) history fills a long neglected gap in immigrant history on the West Coast. In four sections, each devoted to a geographic area of Oregon, the rich-often tragic-history of the Chinese is detailed through well-researched text and a wonderful collection of photos-many from private collections not previously seen by the public.

Reviews - What do customers think about Dreams of West: A History of the Chinese in Oregon, 1850-1950?

The other Oregon Pioneers  Sep 27, 2007
An Oregonian for over 50 years, I've of course been marginally aware of Chinese cultural influence in the state--who hasn't been to Chinatown in Portland? However, until I read this book, I had no idea what a tremendous contribution has been made by the Chinese to the basic fabric of our agricultural economic success. Dreams of the West provides a fascinating close look at those contributions which started in the mid-1800's.

Did you know that CHINESE immigrants were responsible for clearing 2/3 of Oregon farmland that has been the basis of our strong agricultural presence? Did you know there were huge Chinese labor forces in the salmon canning industry and that there were Chinese gold miners?

These and many other contributions of the Chinese to the cultural and economic fabric of Oregon are detailed in this wonderful account of words and pictures.

Enlightening!  Sep 26, 2007
An excellent introduction to the Chinese immigrants that became part of Oregon and how they persevered.
