Moon Shadow is a young Tang boy (white demons would call him Chinese) who comes to live with his father in the Land of the Golden Mountain (San Francisco). We get to follow Moon Shadow's life from 1903 – 1910, during which he becomes friends with a "demoness" and her granddaughter, corresponds with the Wright Brothers, and experiences the San Francisco earthquake of 1906.

For some reason, I was reluctant to read this. Once I finally got started, though, I enjoyed it a lot! What's not to like about such well-written and interesting historical fiction? This was my first time to read Laurence Yep, but definitely not my last.
