Editorial Reviews

Review

"Yung [has] used the great strength of the sources―their personal warmth and vibrancy―to construct [an] enthralling, very human account of this neglected saga of American tragedy and triumph in World War II."―Military History of the West

"The Adventures of Eddie Fung is a fascinating read that provides a fresh outlook on Chinese American history from a male perspective and a Chinese American perspective on twentieth-century U.S. history. His positive outlook, engaging style, and self-deprecating humor will appeal to general audiences."―Journal of American Ethnic History

"[Eddie Fung's] story of harrowing adventures, one after another..is a fascinating book that will hold the reader's interest from the first page to the last..The Adventures of Eddie Fung is indeed an exciting and riveting contribution to Asian American history."―Chinese American Forum

"Yung [has] used the great strength of [her] source―[his] great personal warmth and vibrancy―to construct an enthralling, very human account of this neglected saga of American tragedy and triumph in World War II."―Military History of the West

"The story of Fung's life is engaging . . . . General readers and students of Asian American and military studies will find the book fascinating, with humor and sadness intertwined."―Western Historical Quarterly

"Readers will find this charming account of Eddie Fung's life story. . . irresistible."―Southwestern Historical Quarterly

"What a life! Eddie Fung was born in Chinatown, ran away from home to become a cowboy, became the only Chinese-American soldier to be captured by the Japanese in World War II, worked on The Bridge on the River Kwai, and even went on to marry the woman who interviewed him as part of a different book project. This tale of resourcefulness and heroism will find broad appeal with high school students and teachers."―Judith Repman, PhD,, The American Association of School Librarians, 2008

"Fung's memoir provides a compelling and much-needed account of a Chinese American life in the twentieth century."―International Examiner

"Eddie drew on his past life experiences to endure incredible hardships, while treating each new adversity as a learning opportunity for survival. Judy Yung has done a superb job editing Eddie's reminiscences―- she and he proved to be such a great team that they got married in 2003!"―Asian American Comparative Collection

"Reading Eddie Fung's memoir, The Adventures of Eddie Fung: Chinatown Kid, Texas Cowboy, Prisoner of War, one marvels at Fung's gumption to attempt the outrageous, his ability to survive incredible hardships, and his honesty, innocence, and curiosity. . . . Judy Yung, an American studies professor at U.C. Santa Cruz realized Fung embodied an oral historian's dream: a fantastic memory, a sense of humor, and a dedication to getting the story right."―AsianWeek National
