Hoping to escape the tyranny of the Japanese government, which controlled their country during the 19th century, many Koreans made the hard decision to leave their homes - and sometimes their entire families - to find a better, more successful life in the United States or Canada. From the Hawaiian plantation workers to the industrious shopkeepers of today, Korean Americans have overcome prejudice and hardship to become a thriving part of North American culture. Book jacket.
