AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Yong doesn't want to leave Guangdong to travel to the goldfields of Ballarat. But as the firstborn son, he has no choice. On the long and treacherous journey, Yong strives to be an honourable son, while he and his father face many hardships and dangers. But in his heart he knows the shameful truth - that his honour is a lie. Can a journey change lives? Has Yong the courage to face what lies ahead? ...' (Source: Walker Books Australia website)

He is tormented by this realisation and hopes his ancestors cannot see his honour is a farce. Yong’s Father and other villagers have borrowed a great deal of money from a moneylender for their passage from the poverty of China to the promised wealth of the Australian goldfields. ...'
