9780747599074: On Gold Mountain: A Family Memoir of Love, Struggle and Survival
Críticas:

'Weaves together fascinating family anecdotes, imaginative details, and the historical details of immigrant life ... Enviably entertaining' Amy Tan 'Astonishing...A comprehensive and exhaustively researched account of a Chinese-American family...that juggles such explosive elements as race, class, tradition, prejudice, poverty, and great wealth in new and relatively unexpected combinations' Los Angeles Times 'Lovingly rendered ... a vivid tableau of a family and an era' People '[See] has done a gallant job of fashioning anecdote, fable and fact into an engaging account' The New York Times Book Review

Reseña del editor:

In 1867, Lisa See's great-great-grandfather left China in search of riches on the 'Gold Mountain', the Chinese name for the promised land of America. His son Fong See later built a mercantile empire and married a Caucasian woman, in spite of laws that prohibited unions between the races. Through sheer endeavour and entrepreneurial genius he became one of the most successful Chinese men in the country. Over the decades, each generation of the See family strived to grasp their dreams, realise their ambitions and overcome their disappointments and sorrows. This sweeping chronicle of five generations of a Chinese-American family encompasses stories of adventure and heartache, racism and romance, secret marriages and sibling rivalries. On Gold Mountain is a powerful social history of two cultures meeting in a new world.
