Canada<U+2019>s first Chinese arrived in British Columbia in 1858 from California. Almost all men--merchants, peasants, and laborers--and almost all from eight rural counties in the Pearl River delta in what is now Guangdong province, they came in search of gold and better fortune, escaping the rebellions, flood and drought of their homeland. By 1863 over 4,000 Chinese lived in B.C., filling jobs shunned by whites: miners, road builders, teamsters, laundry men, restaurateurs, domestic servants and cannery workers. Between 1881 and 1885, thousands more arrived, most imported to build the transcontinental railway.

A superior man by Paul Yee( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Yee's first novel for adults is an historical account of a Chinese man on a journey to find the mother of his son.

It also depicts the bawdy world of Chinese "bachelors," whose families remained in China while they worked in Canada, and who enjoyed more freedom to live their lives without restraint. Yang Hok is not an easy man to like, but through the blood and sweat of his experience, he aspires to become the superior man he knows he should be
