Dedication

Book description

""It was just a small sparkle, but it was enough. Even though I had been given bigger pieces of gold, to find gold is an exciting feeling. My whole body was tingling!"
Shu Cheong works on the goldfields at Lambing Flat. It is 1860, and the white miners' behaviour towards the Chinese is becoming more and more violent. Shu Cheong witnesses increasing hatred and brutality towards his people... But he also learns the value of true friendship.
