White Jade Tiger

by Julie Lawson

White Jade Tiger is a time travel adventure that takes thirteen-year-old Jasmine through a doorway in Victoria's Fan Tan Alley and deep into the heart of the Fraser Canyon during the building of the Canadian Pacific Railway. With Keung, a boy from China, she becomes involved in a search for a mythical white jade tiger. The story was inspired by a fascination with Chinese mythology, a longtime interest in the CPR, and a field trip to Victoria's Chinatown.
