About the book:
I AM NOT A GHOST
THE CANADIAN PACIFIC RAILWAY
By David Bouchard with Zhong-Yang Huang
Illustrated by Sean Huang
Foreword by Brandt C. Louie
Told in the voice of an elderly Chinese grandfather, eager for his and his countrymen’s legacy as builders of the CPR to live on, I Am Not a Ghost: The Canadian Pacific Railway reveals a part of Canadian history that has been overlooked. From the Indigenous people who helped Chinese newcomers survive in their new environment to the dangerous and life-threatening conditions under which these newcomers lived and worked, I Am Not a Ghost is sure to open some eyes on this part of Canada’s history.
“… I Am Not a Ghost provides a very personal story that goes beyond the placement of that last spike and reminds us that achievements are often on the backs of others who should be recognized and their stories told.” — CanLit for LittleCanadians
“Canada is still writing its story as a nation, and this book is an important part of that story.” — Brandt C. Louie
