    The discovery of gold in the Black Hills of South Dakota brought thousands of people to the mining town of Deadwood, including many Chinese immigrants. Ethnic Oasis explores how the Chinese met the challenge of living and working in a land much different from their own. Seeking to surround themselves with the familiar, they established their own “Chinatowns” in Deadwood and other communities throughout the West. From these enclaves, Chinese immigrants competed to succeed in American society. But through diligence and an ability to work within the social and legal systems, many Chinese thrived and became respected members of what was once a hostile community. Ethnic Oasis presents the history and archaeology of the Chinese experience in the Black Hills and elsewhere in the West. The studies are supplemented by eight color plates of artifacts recovered during recent archeological excavations in Deadwood’s Chinatown. Indexed 96 pages Paperbound 2004
