An award-winning Western featuring an orphaned son of Chinese immigrants, raised with a skill to kill.

Ming Tsu is after revenge against the individuals involved in beating him, taking his wife (a railway magnate’s daughter), and seeing him sentenced to 10-years hard labor for miscegenation. But along the way he agrees to see a circus troupe safely to Reno. This 2022 Andrew Carnegie Medal winner for Excellence in Fiction is brutal and cinematic, with a dose of magic realism.
