Summary/Review: "In 1834, a Chinese woman named Afong Moy arrived in America as both a prized guest and advertisement for a merchant firm--a promotional curiosity and celebrity used to peddle exotic wares from the East. This first biography of Afong Moy explores how she shaped a number of Americans' impressions of China, all while living as a stranger in a foreign land." --Provided by publisher.
