These seventeen stories, once gathered in San Francisco's Chinatown, have been retold by a writer well attuned to today's young readers as well as to his own heritage. The intriguing tales are organized into sections titled "Roots," "Family Ties," "The Wild Heart," "Face," and "Beyond the Grave." This collection is a welcome companion to Yep's THE RAINBOW PEOPLE (Harper, 1989). (Age 9 and older)
