Reviews - What do customers think about Lotus Among the Magnolias: The Mississippi Chinese?

Good Read  Feb 8, 2008
This book about the Chinese is very good read. Anywone interested in this subject will enjoy Lotus. Many are not aware of this, but the original Chinese settlers in Mississippi are being replaced by Taiwanese Chinese. The original group dying off, their offspring leaving for better opportunities.

Only one other book delves into the Mississippi Chinese: Between Black & White, which is also very information. Before long the original Chinese in MS will be extinct.
