The author’s opening statement reveals her inspiration to tell the unknown and lost stories of the people whose efforts helped form a valley far removed from vineyards and now-famous growers.
Uncover the story of Napa’s first Chinatown, once home to nearly 500 immigrants, dwindling to less than seventeen. Meet the small but determined group of African American farmers and barbers who called Napa home. And we can’t forget the indomitable May Howard, a successful business owner and brothel owner. Learn the uglier stories as well, such as the attempt at dominance of the Ku Klux Klan during and up to the 1920’s.
