As the Civil War rages, fifteen-year-old Thomas Beck longs to fight for his country. He’s underage, but his brother, Robert, claims there’s another reason he can’t fight: there’s no such thing as a Chinese Yankee. Assumed a slave because of his odd appearance–including his traditional Chinese queue (long braid)–Thomas soon discovers that giving battle with his regiment isn’t enough to shed the Chinese label from his Yankee status.
