Interesting take on the Asian Amercan experience,
By A Customer
This review is from: Precious Gold, Precious Jade (Hardcover)
This is a very interesting book following the difficult friendship between two young girls living during the Gold Rush. The fact that one girl is of Western European descent and the other is of Chinese descent makes this a very complicated friendship. This novel looks at rascism from a new perspective. It is also an interesting take on frontier life for women. The only downside of this book is that there is a slightly affected accent and odd placement of colloquialisms that can be distracting.
