AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In the late 19th and 20th centuries large numbers of Chinese travelled to the USA, Australia and other parts of the world to prospect for gold, or to work as labourers, gardeners and traders, but there are few accounts of the lives of these people who predominantly came from the coastal region of Guangdong province. Stanley Hunt's From Shekki to Sydney: An Autobiography fills part of that gap in Australian and Chinese social history by documenting his childhood in Shekki, his experiences after relocating to Australia, and the lives of his parents and grandparents. -- Inside cover flap


  • 'This book is my autobiography, and tells of my dear wife Valmai, my family and her family, as well as the many friends whose love, guidance and support have been anchors in my life. From Shekki to Sydney is dedicated to all of them.' -- Acknowledgements
