Description

This is a landmark collection of eight stories from the celebrated children's author Paul Yee. Describing the extraordinary circumstances of the Chinese who came to build the railroad in Canada and the United States in simple, beautiful prose, Yee's stunning text accurately portrays the culture clash between the Old and New World. Matched with Ng's exquisite paintings, this collection is nothing less than required reading on the history of our continent.
