Massacred for Gold -- Review Coming Soon

Readers interested in the experience of 19th Century Chinese immigrants or the development of the American West will want to read Massacred for Gold: The Chinese in Hells Canyon, Gregory Nokes's thoroughly researched account of the murders of over 30 Chinese gold miners in 1887.

My review of Massacred will appear in the December issue of the Internet Review of Books on the 15th.I'll post it here on Rose City Reader after the IRB December issue finishes its run.


  1. Hi! This comment isn't really about this post but ...

    Earlier today I sent an email to all registered contributors to The Complete Booker. Your message was undeliverable to the email address you've registered with Blogger. You may need to update your profile. Here's the gist of the message:

    In 2010, The Complete Booker will offer several new ways to participate, in the form of a year-long challenge. Please see the challenge sign-up post for more information. If you don't want to do a timed challenge, that's OK -- you may continue to participate in the perpetual challenge as before. But if you need a little motivation to help you work through the list, the 2010 challenge may be just what you need!

    Thanks for making The Complete Booker such a great community!

    P.S. If you no longer wish to be a contributor to The Complete Booker, please visit the blog and email the moderator with a request to be removed.

  2. Very interesting...Not something I would have picked up on my own. I'm sad this is the first I've heard of this incident. Thank you for the review!
