When Marco Graham witnesses his father being kidnapped in a market in Buenaventura, Colombia, he decides that he must stowaway on a freighter headed north to Vancouver to find help in freeing his father. Marco has to evade drug dealers, security guards, the police and the “authorities” who would send him back to Colombia — straight into the arms of his father’s kidnappers.

The story of the 100,000 British children who came to Canada as indentured workers between 1879 and 1938. Complete with archival material, including letters, 50 photographs and information sidebars, the volume is a visual delight.
