A brief history of early British Columbia though the lens of an ethnic Chinese. Like all other minority groups in Canada, the Chinese faced insurmountable obstacles and tribulations when they first settled on "The Golden Mountain", or Canada's West Coast. The struggles that the generations before us faced should not be forgotten, as it offers important lessons about life as an ethnic minority in a nation that is still largely Caucasian. Unlike conventional history textbooks, readers will be able to witness important events in BC's early history through stories of the Chinese that lived during that tumultuous time. Canadian-born Chinese will be proud of their Asian ancestry, as the contributions of the Chinese were vitally important to the creation of this nation."In the Shadow of the Rockies: A Chinese Perspective of BC's Early History" chronicles the history of the West Coast of Canada. It contains 40 biographical stories with a total of 120,000 words, 132 illustrations, and 12 historical maps that outlines the entire history of this land.
