This is an engaging survival- adventure story , a social history, and a heroic quest. Combining believable charcters with thrilling adventure, Yep convinces readers that th Chinese rarilroad worers were indeed men to match the towering mountains of the west. This book was also a 1994 Newberry Honor book.

A must read! This book tells the hidden truth behind the Chinese and the California railroad. It has so many literary elements present, the characters, the imagery-incredible! This book is a teacher's (or parents) dream for combining history with literature. It has some emotional moments as well so keep the tissue close by.

I really liked this book. I couldn't put it down. I actually thought that I was going to hate it because I had just randomly pulled it out of a book pile in my classroom because I needed something to read. Laurence Yep really trapped me with his words. I can't wait to read more of his work.

I read this book when I was in 8th grade, and let me tell you how great of a novel this is. The plot and story are deep and Yep does an excellent job developing them. If you're reading this deciding if you're going to read it or not, I suggest you do read this novel. After you read it, you will feel a sense of accomplishment and I look for a good ending in most books I read. Dragon's Gate had it. If you're also looking for a good book to sit down and read for pleasure I suggest this also. It's easy reading with a great story.
