"Told with quiet restraint. But the tension is always there, and Choi's beautiful, full-page line-and-watercolor paintings, in sepia tones and shades of green, are quiet and packed with feeling." --Starred, Booklist "Choi's soft illustrations. . . capture the spirit of the time with beautiful visual detail. This is a significant book." --School Library Journal "This testament to the pull of Gold Mountain offers a bit of Chinese-American history in a handsome package." --Kirkus Reviews "Provides a rare glimpse into the challenges posed for Chinese immigrants in the early 20th century." --Publishers Weekly "Choi's lovely, somber, full-page watercolors and Lee's quiet narrative. . .put a human face on the great abstraction of immigration." --Washington Post Book World "Ellis Island may be well known to most schoolchildren, but its West Coast cousin is finally getting the attention it deserves." --The Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books
