Winner, Chinese American Library Association Best Book Award winner (Fiction) The history of Chinese immigration to Canada and the US over the past 100-plus years has been fraught with sadness and indignity; newcomers to North America encountered discrimination, subjugation, and separation from loved ones. As well, in Canada the Chinese head tax was introduced after the Canadian Parliament passed the Chinese Immigration Act of 1885 to discourage Chinese immigrants, while in the US, the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act outright banned Chinese immigration to America. Despite such obstacles, these Chinese newcomers persevered in order to create a better life for the generations to come. Escape to Gold Mountain is the first graphic novel to tell their story: based on historical documents and interviews with elders, this is a vivid history of the Chinese in their search for "Gold Mountain" (the Chinese colloquialism for North America) as seen through the eyes of the Wong family. They traverse the challenges of eking out an existence in their adopted homeland with hope and determination, creating a poignant immigrant's legacy for their sons and daughters. Escape to Gold Mountain is a moving and gripping story for all young North Americans. Ages 12 and up.… (mehr)

This graphic novel illustrates how the Chinese came to North America over the course of more than 100 yearsL a history filled with discrimination, heatbreak and separation from the loved ones. Despite these obstacles, however, the Chinese perservered, working hard and making sacrifices in order to create a better life for the future generations.'

In graphic format, Wong outlines the history of the Chinese in North America. Despite accomplishments such as helping build the railroads in America and Canada, Chinese immigrants faced scorching racism and were the victims of violent attacks and exclusionary laws. There is no sparing the reader of realities; racist terms are tossed about by white characters, and there are illustrations of men either killed by mob violence or explosions during rail construction. Teen and adult readers will not only get the fuller picture about Chinese-American historty, but they may be moved to to learn further about some of the historic figures portrayed in the book. Extensive research citations are listed in the back. ( )

I received this as a first-read book. It was a very interesting book. I knew some of the history being told but not all. The format will make it appealing to youth so hopefully the story of the Chinese in Canada and the U.S. will not be forgotten. ( )
