Overview

Take a remarkable journey into the hearts and minds of three generations of Chinese men in America: the grandfather who lays roadbed across the Sierra Nevadas for our first transcontinental railroad, the father who spends his days off from the laundry dancing like Fred Astaire down Fifth Avenue and the son who returns to his homeland to escape his dead mother's angry spirit.

It's a magical tale -- woven from memory, myth and fact -- of what they endured.

"A history at once savage and beautiful...bone-grinding reality and luminous fantasy." (The New Republic)
