 Host Linda Olson-Osterlund interviews author Jean Phaelzer about her book Driven Out: The Forgotten War Against Chinese Americans. From the Gold Rush in the 1840's through the Civil War and into the early 1900's Chinese faced brutal purges and roundups throughout the Pacific Northwest. Her book chronicles this history and the courageous story of Chinese resistance. Their are important parallels for taday and the roundups of Mexican immigrants across our country.
