Yong, the journey of an unworthy son – Janeen Brian


Designed for younger high school readers, this novel is based around the lives of Chinese immigrants who left their homeland to find their yong-195x300.jpgfortunes in Australia during the goldrush.

Yong accompanies his father and other families from their small village in Guangdong, to the goldfields of Ballarat.

The story provides a strong understanding of traditional Chinese family values and in particular, honour.

Very readable.
