Charlie Two Shoes and the marines of Love Company by Michael Peterson( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the tale of an eleven-year-old Chinese boy, Tsui Chi Hsii - better known by his American name Charlie Tsui, or Charlie Two Shoes - who was befriended by a company of U.S. Marines sent to China in 1945 shortly after the end of World War II. Malnourished and often cold, Charlie lived in a mud hut just beyond the barbed wire protecting the men of Love Company, 4th Marines, 1st Marine Division. The Marines gave him food and clothing, taught him English, sent him to church, and paid for his schooling. But when the communists took over China in 1949, Love Company was forced out of the country, and Charlie was left behind. Back home the Marines moved on with their lives, yet they could not forget their young friend. Charlie, refusing to denounce his connection with the Americans, suffered immensely at the hands of the Maoist government. After thirty-five years, seventeen as a political prisoner, he finally managed to contact some of his old Marine Corps friends. They, in turn, joined together again to help bring Charlie to America. Numerous obstacles had to be overcome, but eventually, with irrepressible pluck, Charlie made his way to the United States in 1983, and two years later he was able to bring his family to this country as well - a true realization of the American dream

Quechan Tribe Comprehensive Plan by Michael Peterson( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Fort Yuma Reservation of the Quechan Tribe is located on 9,246 acres in the southwest corner of California in Imperial County and the southeast corner of Arizona in Yuma County. Historical records indicate the Quechans have inhabited the area since approximately 800 A.D. The 1974 tribal rolls show a population of 1,687. The unemployment rate is 52 percent with underemployment also a severe problem with 39 percent of those employed earning less than $5000 annually. Adequate housing is a major concern as only 632.7 acres are in tribal ownership and some tribal members have difficulty securing permanent housing sites. The use of agricultural land for homes would diminish that economic potential for the reservation. Development of a subdivision might be one solution to alleviate housing needs. Areas of potential economic development include agriculture, tourism, and a motel-restaurant complex. Job availabilities are centered primarily in surrounding cities and employment education should be a major element in tribal programs to eliminate unemployment and underemployment. In addition to making planning recommendations for tribal action, the document provides socioeconomic analysis, history, and goals of the Quechan people, and discusses their land resources, housing status, physical systems, human resources, and planning alternatives.
