These tales about Chinese workers in Canada closely mirror the experiences of Chinese people in America. The stories are good, the illustrations excellent. The only caution is the last story about the Iron Chink, a machine which replaced Chinese cannery workers. Chink is a pejorative word for Chinese. Some might find the trick a bit gruesome.

These moving stories about the hardships and heroics of the first Chinese immigrants highlight the rich traditions and culture they brought with them to Canada.
