Chinese men and women crossed the Pacific Ocean to find wealth and prosperity in “Gold Mountain” in order to escape the widespread poverty of their homeland. Lee Yik-Gim, a Chinese man who worked on the Northern Pacific Railroad in the 1880s, had an extraordinary experience of his own. Native Americans captured him and he lived with them for two years before arriving in Baltimore. This fantastic story is one of the many scenarios of what could have happened during this unique encounter of a Chinese immigrant and Native American tribe.
