Using a hushed storyteller's voice, B.D. Wong performs the story of the trials and tribulations of Moonshadow and his father, Windrider, Chinese immigrants to the New World. This story of strife and toil is told in a manner true to its ancient roots. Throughout the tale, the listener is engaged with the characters' struggles for a better life and fulfillment of their dreams. The tale is as well-crafted as Windrider's kites, and flies along as father and son try to make their way in a strange land. Although this is historical fiction, the story is deftly narrated as a fairytale, a choice that adds to its mystique. D.L.M. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 02]
