The building of the transcontinental railroad is the setting for this powerful historical adventure novel.
When ten-year-old Winnie Tucker comes to California to join her father, a mining engineer for the Central Pacific, she befriends Lee Cheng, a young Chinese tea carrier. But the things Lee tells her about the awful working conditions the Chinese laborers must endure can’t be true, can they? And where will her allegiance lie if the “Celestials” go out on strike—with her father or with her friend?
