DEAD MAN'S GOLD AND OTHER
Toronto : Douglas & McIntyre,
IL 5-8, RL 6.2
has left his home in China to seek his fortune. He has heard of the
gold rush in California and believes that he will become rich. When
he arrives in San Francisco, he finds dozens of Chinese men returning to
China empty handed. Chung learns that the gold is all gone and that
there is not wealth here for him. Determined to make his fortune
in this new country and to prove he is not afraid of everything, Chung
takes a job working in a mine. As he is lowered into the mine, he
prays for the courage to do this job. And his prayer is answered.
He is visited by a spirit who makes him a deal. Chung will have the
courage and good luck he needs but when he marries, he will trade his body
for the dead miner whose spirit talks to him. Well, Chung believes
this is a great idea. He will just never get married. Easy,
right. Or is it? This is just one of the ghost stories you'll
read in Dead Man's Gold and Other Stories.
