The first significant Chinese immigration to the United States came in the 1850s when thousands of Chinese came to "Gum San" - "Land of the Golden Mountain." Chinese immigrants worked hard and struck it rich in so many ways - many worked as miners, others opened stores, restaurants, and landries. Chinese people started communities and many helped build railroads and other infastructure of growth. Historian Barbara Pricer recounts the story of the Chinese in communities around the north state, including Quincy, Susanville, Oroville, Marysville, and the like. A few B&W photos. Paperbound: 90 pages: 5.24 x 8.375"
