This is a great little book about the Chinese pioneer rail road building experience in Canada.  This is a juvenile novel written as a diary about a young teen who follows his father to Canada, to help make money for their family in China.

I reviewed this book last summer, and read it – just before visiting Craigellachie, the site of the “Last Spike” on the Canadian Pacific Railway. 

Paul
has been one of my influences, in studying Chinese Canadian history –
it was great to be on the Saltwater City project that he chaired in
1986
