Well written and interesting how the author inserted her opinions of the historical situations, not just reporting "facts." The historical characters and events are more memorable for her occasional opinions. I wish more information was concentrated on the Chinese rail workers experiences, as the Native American's experiences were documented. Perhaps not many accounts were written of this, so it's more difficult to include...? I was happy to see lots of large photographs and drawings to depict historical scenes. Anyway, I do recommend reading this book. Really 3.75 stars.
