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.
Handsome format; compelling reading.
With its excellent writing and deeply symbolic illustrations, this book is highly recommended.
...Ng's cool, brooding full-page paintings have an intense presence that enhances the stories' exotic flavor...A book not to miss.
