Overview
The Chinese return to California in the persons of Zhau My-Lee and his daughter Electra My-Lee. Here we learn of the Chinese revolution that brought a Christian Emperor to power and his reforms that led to the immigration of many Chinese to America seeking a new life, new wealth and new power. Only to find their lives and promises forsaken by treacherous "human traffickers" in a game of Chinese roulette. Recounted are the variant lives and purposes of Zhau My-Lee in the highly cultured environment of his father's home and Apothecary, and Zhau's protagonist, Zing Tao-Woo, from the hard sea coast of Guangdong Provence. First in their homeland China, and then on the construction crews of the Transcontinental Railroad, 1865. Zhau becomes Headman of the Central Pacific Railroad while Zing Tao-Woo becomes one of the most haunting characters of modern-day poetry.
