(p.171) Conclusion
In Pursuit of Gold

Sue Fawn Chung

University of Illinois Press

This concluding chapter closes the volume with some comparisons with Idaho (as an area where the Chinese mined but were driven out) and other mining communities in the Chinese diaspora both inside and outside of the United States, and shows some similarities and differences that have occurred. It shows how the lives of the Chinese miners and merchants presented in this study and the many instances of positive interactions between the ethnically diverse members of the small mining communities in which they lived has left an imprint upon the three mining towns described earlier on in this book, as well as helped to shed new light on the history of the Chinese in the American West.
