How Much of These Hills Is Gold Overview. How Much of These Hills Is Gold is a historical fiction novel by C Pam Zhang. The story follows two young siblings traversing the Western United States at the end of the gold rush. With both of their parents gone, Sam and Lucy pursue different lives based on their different beliefs and desires. How Much of These Hills Is Gold tells us that stories—like people, like the rough and stunning landscape of California itself—are constantly in the process of being made, broken, and finally remade into something tender and new.” —Lauren Groff, The New York Times–bestselling author of Fates and Furies.

An electric debut novel set against the twilight of the American gold rush, two siblings are on the run in an unforgiving landscape--trying not just to survive but to find a home.

Ba dies in the night; Ma is already gone. Newly orphaned children of immigrants, Lucy and Sam are suddenly alone in a land that refutes their existence. Fleeing the threats of their western mining town, they set off to bury their father in the only way that will set them free from their past. Along the way, they encounter giant buffalo bones, tiger paw prints, and the specters of a ravaged landscape as well as family secrets, sibling rivalry, and glimpses of a different kind of future.

Both epic and intimate, blending Chinese symbolism and re-imagined history with fiercely original language and storytelling, How Much of These Hills Is Gold is a haunting adventure story, an unforgettable sibling story, and the announcement of a stunning new voice in literature. On a broad level, it explores race in an expanding country and the question of where immigrants are allowed to belong. But page by page, it's about the memories that bind and divide families, and the yearning for home.

美国西部的华人叙事

早期华人坐船从广东、香港到旧金山后逐渐渗透到美国西部,开始采金,然后修铁路,虽然数以万计但留下完整姓名的极少。在注重资料保存的英文世界也好不到哪里去,而且有记载的几位都是性工作者,即使她们也就叫“阿彩”、“中国玛丽”之类,听着像艺名,不像真名。北京出生、美... (展开)

disappointed

I’m utterly disappointed by it, and how well-regarded this book is. First and foremost, as a trilingual reader (English, Mandarin, and Cantonese), the lethal weakness that bugs me throughout the book and makes me hate it so much is the misuse of languages.... (展开)
