From the Publisher
Annotation In 19th century Wyoming, Chinese immigrants imported to work in coal mines are treated with disdain by European Americans who settle the land. But when Addie Maine comes back to the coal town she escaped after an attempt to murder her, the plot of TAKE ME HOME thrusts into the position of defending Wing Lee, a Chinese laborer she befriended decades earlier. Brian Leung's novel digs into this clash of cultures and fight for honor, while his words inhabit the region's brusque landscape with an austere lyricism that has no better environmental match.
