AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Poppy is on the road again, desperately trying to catch up with her brother. When she meets a mysterious Chinese boy, she thinks she might finally be getting closer to finding Gus and solving the mystery of the Chinese letter with the very special dragon seal. In Wahgunyah, she makes contact with the Chinese community who have come to Victoria to find gold. She's so close to finding out about her father and her Chinese heritage, but then Poppy is framed as a thief and captured! Will anyone believe that she's innocent?' (Source: Libraries Australia.)
