About this title:

Synopsis: A book of Chinese American stories as told through narrative and color photography. Consisting of 28 vignettes and 53 color nature photographs, Earth Passages tells the author's story, the story of a girl born and raised in family of eight in the inner city ghetto of San Francisco's Chinatown where her mother worked six days a week, twelve hours a day in a garment sweatshop. In the girl's rare escapes into the woods she discovers a magical world so unlike the ghetto in which she lives. The stories from childhood are paired with color nature photographs taken by the author as an adult. The photographs capture the emotional weight of growing up in the barrenness of a ghetto. They are also images of mother nature giving the girl what she did not receive from her overworked mother--the folds of the earth that cradle, the caressing of boulders and trees, and the warm embrace of early morning and late afternoon sunlight. About the Author: Lora Jo Foo is author of Asia
