To her real-life adversary, Norman As-sing, chief of the Chinese in California, Ah Toys flaunted independence is an affront. To Ah Toy, the merchants assumed power and position is ridiculous. Their clash is inevitable and the stakes are high: power for him or independence for her.

Their conflict is played out amid incomparably dramatic events: San Franciscos several disastrous fires, Californias statehood celebration, a cholera epidemic, Vigilance Committee hangings, the rise of the tongs, a Chinese war in Weaverville.
