Dragonwings: A Newbery Honor Award Winner

Dragonwings: A Newbery Honor Award Winner

“When I was a kid I always looked forward to Banned Books Week at the library.  You got to read about all the silly things adults were getting upset over.

Dragonwings was a classic then and remains one now.  It is the first book in The Golden Mountain Chronicles, Laurence Yep's epic and magnificent family saga.  The series is now complete and spans from 1849 to 2011 (aka the future, back when I read this in middle school).  But this book is still an excellent place to start.”

The 25th anniversary edition of a Newbery Honor–winning classic

For the first time ever, Laurence Yep's sweeping saga of a Chinese family's journey to the Land of the Golden Mountain—America—is being published in one stunningly designed series of volumes as the Golden Mountain Chronicles.

Moon Shadow was only eight years old when he sailed from China to join his father, Windrider, in America. For years, Windrider had lived in San Francisco and made his living doing laundry. Father and son had never met.

But over time, Moon Shadow grows to love and respect his father. And Windrider, with Moon Shadow's help, endures the mockery of the other Chinese, the poverty, the separation from wife and country, and even the great earthquake, to make his wonderful dream come true.
