Rating: 7

Set in 1849 when China was under the domination of the Manchu and when the Western powers were first imposing the unequal treaties, the Young family growing up in the countryside near Canton opposes both the Manchu and the westerners. But bad fortune and drought cause Cassia and her brother Foxfire to look to the United States, the land of the Golden Mountain.
