Will Windrider
take to the skies?

Moon shadow is eight years old when he sails from China to join his father, Windrider, in America. Windrider lives in San Francisco and makes his living doing laundry. Father and son have never met.

But Moon Shadow grows to love and respect his father and to believe in his wonderful dream. And Windrider, with Moon Shadow's help is willing to endure the mockery of the other Chinese, the poverty, the separation from his wife and country'even the great earthquake'to make his dream come true.

"A Chinese immigrant and his son build a flying machine in an unusual historical novel, unique in its perspective of the Chinese in America and its portrayal of early 20th-century San Francisco, including the Earthquake, from an immigrant's viewpoint."--"School Library Journal""A fine, sensitive novel written with grace in a way that conveys the Chinese American's cultural heritage." --"Booklist""A triumph."--"The New York Times "A fine, sensitive novel written with grace in a way that conveys the Chinese American's cultural heritage".(Starred review) -- ALA Booklist
