Garvey's meticulously detailed account is also equally colorful and reminiscent of place and time in telling a story that helped to shape not only Panama but also the world. ... A riff on the interplay of capitalism, colonialism, racism, and classism; White Gold is an entertaining and educational sojourn to a time and place that changed history and the people who helped to do it. --African American Literature Book Club
White Gold is an extremely well researched and well written historical novel ... It reads like a movie script stirring your emotions to feel exactly what each and every one of the characters of the book felt. I predict that those of you who are not history buffs already will become fans of this genre after reading White Gold. --The Silver People Heritage Foundation
About the Author
W. B. Garvey is a relative of the Jamaican National Hero, Marcus Garvey and the author of the critically acclaimed historical novel Panama Fever: Digging Down Gold Mountain. While going through his father's papers, Garvey learned that his grandfather had been a railroad engineer on the construction of the Panama Canal, sparking years of research that led to his two related historical novels, Panama Fever and White Gold. Garvey is an honors graduate of the University of Southern California and has lived in Los Angeles, Kingston Jamaica and London England. He now lives and writes in New York City.
