Young Moon Shadow finds himself in a completely new country – America – and with a completely new family – the father he’s never met. In this Newbery Honor book, author Laurence Yep creates historical fiction based on the plight and struggle that many Chinese immigrants faced when entering the United States for the first time in the early 20th century. With its historical themes and compelling character development, Dragonwings is a classroom curriculum standard for many schools and programs.
At only eight years old, Moon Shadow makes his way from China to the United States, with only a struggling father that he’s never met as his companion. Moon Shadow’s father Windrider has set himself up in San Francisco with the hopes of growing his laundry business. While the two start off as practically strangers, Moon Shadow comes to respect and cherish his father as well as his pursuits. Yet, will Moon Shadow’s love and support be enough to help his father succeed? In a new country, Windrider faces the struggle of poverty, distance from his wife and other Chinese people, and even an earthquake.
