Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 4^-7. In this novel, 11-year-old Wong Ming-Chung, better known as Runt, starts keeping a journal in October 1851, when his Uncle Stone leaves their village in China for the Golden Mountain, the gold fields of America. Later that year, Runt makes the difficult and dangerous journey as well, eventually finding his way to his uncle. Working together at a rough mining camp, Runt finds good friends from around the world, violent prejudice against Chinese, and, eventually, a little gold. Runt's quiet voice draws readers into an eventful and sometimes moving story. Well-drawn settings and characters on both sides of the Pacific contribute to the readers' sense of being there, transported through time to observe a unique era in American history and to watch Runt grow in confidence, cleverness, and self-reliance. A solid historical fiction choice from the My Name Is America series, the boys' division of the Dear America books. As with others in the umbrella series, a selection of photos and illustrations and a long historical note are included at the back. --Carolyn Phelan"
