Near Fine in Fine DJ. B&W Illustrations. Unveils the first tangible proof that the Chinese settled in the New World before Columbus. A large Chinese colony existed and thrived on Canadian shores well before the European Age of Discovery. He addresses how the ruins had been previously overlooked or misunderstood,and how the colony was abandoned and forgotten, in China and in the New World. And he discovers the traces the colony left in the storytelling and culture of the Mi’kmaq, whose written language, clothing, technical knowledge, religious beliefs, and legends, he argues, expose deep cultural ties to China ISBN: 0312361866 (Nova Scotia, Cape Breton Island)
