Course Description

Set in the Pacific Northwest from 1877 through 1925, this is a story of the American West with a twist.  Hop Lee is a teenage Chinese boy who came to America armed with a calligraphy brush, a blank journal, a fortune teller’s scroll that foretold his life’s journey, and a burning desire to become American.

The story celebrates the immigrant American spirit but is also set against the anti-Chinese attitudes that defined the Chinese Question in the 1800s.  Washing laundry, selling poultry, and growing hops brought Hop Lee success, and friendships with bankers, publishers, and politicians, but his dream of becoming an American was ever elusive.
