Son of South Mountain & Dust

Son of South Mountain & Dust by Thomas W. Wing with Carolyn Wing Greenlee

Dr. Thomas Wing’s memoir, Son of South Mountain & Dust offers a rare view inside the head of a Second Generation Chinese boy exploring early ham radio; discovering cars, planes, and trains; and coming to appreciate the weather-beaten Chinese laborers who worked on his father’s farm.

Illustrated with the engaging pencil sketches of Duncan Chin, who was himself a rascally little boy.

Son of South Mountain & Dust is part in a series of the Wing family memoirs, which includes:
