Ming and his father leave China and go to California to try to strike it rich in the gold fields. One night, the weather changed. Ming had fallen asleep looking at the stars. He woke up to a dark gray sky. There were no stars in sight. Sheets of water fell from the sky. The wind howled. The junk pitched wildly. Men were rushing around to take down the sails. Water splashed everywhere. At times, it felt like the junk might tear apart. Ming's father grabbed Ming. He held him tightly. But Ming wasn't afraid. "Don't worry, " his father said. "If the junk tips over, " Ming said, "some of the barrels will float. We can hop on barrels and ride them to Gold Mountain."
