The Chinese American Family Album<br>by Dorothy Hoobler and Thomas Hoobler
Name: The Chinese American Family Album
by Dorothy Hoobler and Thomas Hoobler
Product Code: BC07
Description:Item Number:BC07 
Product Detail:The Chinese American Family Album is a scrapbook of family letters and diary entries, official documents, newspaper articles, and excerpts from literature of the past and present--a personal remembrance of an extended family of Chinese immigrants.

The letters written by the new immigrants to the folks left behind in China allow us to feel the ache of leaving home and family behind. Clippings from newspapers and personal memoirs tell of the pain and fear and prejudice in the new country. We learn about the building of the transcontinental railroad and how Chinese immigrants were the backbone of the work force, toiling long hours under the worst conditions.

We see Chinatowns spring up wherever the immigrants landed, and we see how the traditions and culture of China were both preserved and altered as the immigrants became Americanized.
