Before the gods.
, 313 pages, cloth, DJ, very good. 1st edition. Illustrated by Nancy Silver. Edited and with an introduction by his son James T. Goo. From the DJ: Before The Gods transports a boy of Chinese heritage from his western home and lifestyle in Hawaii into the depths of home life in China, at a time when custom and tradition were as they had been for centuries, and all the rites and legends and beliefs of the old days were still being taken with the utmost seriousness by everyone. It examines the Chinese attitude early in this century, when a sleeping land was hardly aware of the world outside. The year was 1916, when Thomas Goo and his younger brother Paul, both in their teens, boarded a ship which took them to what was to them a strangely foreign land, where they could hardly speak a word of the native language nor knew anything of its people and customs.
