"This is an engaging survival-adventure story, a social history, a heroic quest."

"Combining believable characters with thrilling adventure. Yep convinces readers that the Chinese railroad workers were indeed men to match the towering mountains of the west."

Although the topic is interesting - the use of Asian workers to build railroads in the US - the book is very slow and the characters lack depth. Also, the writing is not terribly exciting.
