Summary
"The progress of America after the Industrial Revolution came at the cost of many unnamed lives, and there s no story more indicative of this than the plight of the Chinese men who built the transcontinental railroad. Young readers will be transported through first-person accounts and even a Western Union telegram into the Central Pacific camp, learning how track was laid, how perilous the job was, and how deeply racism affected these men who thanklessly connected the coasts. Black-and-white photography brings history to life, while a table of powerful statistics exposes the incredible reality of the epic project." --
