"In 1906, the Chinese in California lived in the shadows, their communities were ruled—and divided—by the necessity of survival, by struggles between powerful tongs, and by duty to their ancestors. Then a natural disaster broughtto light ancient Chinese artifacts that hinted of their presence long before Europeans ever touched the wild California coast. Whether by fate or design the artifacts soon disappeared again, and nearly a century would pass before an uncoventional American scientist unearths evidence of this great discovery" --Cover, p. 4.

Slow start. Interesting historically, culturally and in a contemporary context. Enjoyed it and will now read Silver Lotus.
