Chinese in Napa Valley: The Forgotten Community That Built Wine Country (American Heritage) (Paperback)
Chinese laborers were once the backbone of Napa Valley. Throughout the late 1800s, they toiled in the grape fields, mines, hop farms, leather tanneries and laundries and carved out neighborhoods in towns throughout the Valley.
