Product Notes

In this Emmy-nominated documentary, Bill Moyers tells the story of a people who have ventured, suffered, endured, and eventually prevailed from war and famine in Guangdong province to a tenuous new life in America. Rather than finding the Gold Mountain they expected in California, early arrivals faced hardship and hard work, battled poverty and prejudice, and experienced the loneliness of a people caught between two worlds. Through personal narratives and interviews with historians, Moyers recounts the remarkable transformation of a bachelor society confined to America's Chinatowns into the new model minority and beyond an integral part of the American mainstream and a vital part of the nation's future.
