Book descriptionEdit

"Heavy rocks dropped from the roof of the tunnel. They just missed Wong Brother and me. But other men were not so lucky. A slab of rock flattened one Red Beard driller; folded him over like a piece of paper. Another had his head cracked open. Their Chinese helper died, too, crushed under several boulders. I saw so much blood that I threw up over and over. We did not pull out their bodies right away, worrying about falling rocks. Finally we went in, fearful that the slightest sound would bring down more rocks.
⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻
Heen is younger than most Chinese workers when he travels to Canada to help build the railway there. He has no choice, for his father's and grandfather's gambling debts spell ruin for his family. Despite his age, he must work as hard as the other men... and face the same dangers.
