Chinese immigrants played a dynamic role in frontier America, yet scholars of Asian America have focused for the most part only on the Pacific Coast, especially California. This reader fills that gap by collecting memoirs, documents, and historical analyses from the other Western states--from the Cascades to the Great Plains--to provide a comprehensive overview of the Chinese in nineteenth-century America.

Industry Reviews

The reader serves as a convenient source about scholarship on Chinese and American western frontier.--Journal of American Ethnic History
