Who was Tie Sing? Join CHSA on Saturday, March 4th as we welcome Author Annette Pimentel tell the true story of a Chinese American mountain man who fed thirty people for ten days in the wilderness--and helped inspire the creation of the National Park Service.

Admission to this event is included in regular Museum Admission prices. Seating is limited- to reserve your seat you must register for this event on Eventbrite.


Tie Sing was born in the mountains. The mountains were in his blood. But because he was of Chinese descent at a time in America when to be Chinese meant working in restaurants or laundries, Tie Sing’s prospects were limited. But he had bigger plans. He began cooking for mapmakers and soon built a reputation as the best trail cook in California.
