Students use statistics, legislation, and political cartoons to explore the historical context of popular sentiment and local and national policy that isolated and excluded early Chinese immigrants. Translated poems and letters of early Chinese immigrants describe their experience on "Gold Mountain" in terms of hopes and dreams as well as the challenges that they had to overcome in order to make a significant contribution to the industrial development of late nineteenth-century America.
