Synopsis: Chinese 'presence' in Australia extends from well before the time of Captain Cook - the Chinese traded with northern Australia long before Europeans came here - right through to the present day, with Chinese activities ranging from being the main customer for our iron ore, to their very extensive intelligence operations here. Robert Macklin, bestselling and critically acclaimed author of HAMILTON HUME and DARK PARADISE, has traced the history of our two nations, including such colourful stories as that of the only Chinese bushranger - Sam Pu, hanged in Bathurst in 1865 - and of the Chinese who left ship in Darwin to head for the diggings in northern Queensland and, after walking to the border, were mostly either imprisoned as illegal immigrants or shot on sight. And in China, two Australians - 'Morrison of Peking' and William Donald - played a significant role the downfall of the last Chinese emperor and the creation of the first republic.GUNS, GOLD AND GWEILOS is a gripping account of a vastly underestimated part of our national story, this isn't history of the Chinese in Australia, it is Australian history, but from an immensely important - and entirely new - angle.'Robert Macklin calls Hamilton Hume 'our greatest explorer', and now that I've read this enthralling but at times shocking story, I totally agree.' ***** GOOD READING on HAMILTON HUME
