Surviving on the Gold Mountain is a significant addition to our too-scant scholarly literature about Chinese American women. In addition to her historical skills, Huping Ling brings to it her irreplaceable experience as a recent student emigrant from the People s Republic of China. It is a contribution to both the history of immigration and the history of women. Roger Daniels, University of Cincinnati
Surviving on the Gold Mountain presents an expansive story of America s past from the particulars of individual lives. This work testifies yet again to the immense possibilities of women s history and its transformative powers. Gary Y. Okihiro, Cornell University, and author of Margins and Mainstreams: Asians in American History and Culture
Huping Ling has written the most comprehensive history of Chinese American women to date. Covering the entire period from the 1840s to the present, she examines the lives and experiences of different subgroups in various regions of the country, focusing particularly on immigration, work, family, and community. Her account is enlivened by the voices of Chinese American women and enriched by photographs, maps, and documents. A work of impressive scope and scholarship, Surviving on the Gold Mountain will be of value to both students and scholars in Ethnic and Asian American history. Evelyn Nakano Glenn, University of California, Berkeley"
