    We drive through Locke on our way to the cabin on the Delta. my interest in "Bitter Melon." It's the history of Locke from the building of the town to current times. It's a charming place that oozes memories of a time long ago.

    Interesting interviews with residents of a small Chinese town near Sac. Wish I had visited when I lived near there!

    Having visited Locke and other Delta towns - I was interested in learning about the history of the Chinese in this area. The book mainly contains interviews and photos from the mid-1970's with residents who have probably all passed away. Read this before Shawna Yang Ryan's "Locke 1928" to get the backstory.
