Paul Yee has written about his Chinese-Canadian heritage in award-winning books for young readers as well as adult non-fiction. Here, he writes a story of one of the Chinese coolies who help build the Canadian Pacific Railway.
After the 1885 completion of the railroad, Yang Hok embarks on a journey to find the mother of his son. Boldly frank and steeped in history, A SUPERIOR MAN portrays the Chinese-Canadian experience in the 19th century.
Conducted in Cantonese and English.
