Review blog by Graham Land

For those who enjoy historical fiction and are interested in some of the more unsung aspects of history, River of Gold offers a detailed view of what life may have been like for a Kanaka immigrant during the frontier times of British Columbia. Susan Dobbie manages to weave significant elements of social history into an adventurous and personal tale. Her skillful use of detail makes the wilderness come alive so much that you can almost feel the cold and smell the mud. Kimo and his friends are stoic and resourceful and their relationship offers an inspiring historical example for the increasingly multiethnic societies of today’s world.
