5.0 out of 5 stars The Stars of Seattle 31 Jan. 2012
By Walter W. Ko - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the oral history from 35 Chinese Americans who immigrated 1934 - 1968 with connection to Seattle, Washington. These group of people mainly came from mainland China, during the Japanese invasion and went to Taiwan in the civil war and eventually came to US. Each one had his/her unique story to form a mosaic. Some of them are husband and wife team, some are from famous family. They told of their struggle in this great country and determined to anchor to develop their potentials after acquiring their higher education and establishing their family.

Their colorful life made this documentary interesting. Their education and profession slowly changed the stereo-typing that Chinese were only coolies. This second wave pioneers confronts glass ceiling and discrimination. With the change of political climate, they are no longer confined in old time Chinatown but get into mainstream.

This is a good collection of people, especially engineers related with Boeing. They work hard in bringing mutual understanding and respect between Chinese Americans and White Americans for the benefit of both. This is a good source of reference in comparing with the first wave of immigrants of San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York. Washington State must be the holy place where voted the first Chinese-American Governor and now the Ambassador to China.
