This is a very positive and enlightening take on a darker moment in U.S. history. I enjoyed reading it. The writing was not always cohesive and was often repetitive, but the overall experience of reading was positive. The book is a nonfiction narrative about the experience of Chinese immigrants in the Boise Basin of Idaho. If this is an area of interest, I would recommend it.
