Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: This masterful biographical novel—which has sold more than 100,000 copies—tells the true life story of Lalu Nathoy, a young Chinese girl sold into slavery in 1871 by her poverty-stricken family and auctioned off in the American West. McCunn tells the gripping tale of how Lalu struggled out of servitude to achieve a life of freedom and dignity as a pioneer woman.

"A valuable book that gives Chinese Americans another true heroine."
—Maxine Hong Kingston
