In BOOK FIVE, "Come to Gum Shan" (Gold Mountain) becomes the call for thousands. And they did only to die by the hundreds after they were dumped ashore. The adventures of Zhau My-Lee and his daughter Electra continue at a breathtaking pace as Zhau becomes Headman of the Central Pacific Railroad Line and his daughter becomes head lady of O'Ryan Gnarr Roberts.
More than thirteen centuries later, on the day of Our Lord recorded the 10th day of May 1869, a single word was telegraphed but once from Promontory Point on down a single-wire line--from northwest of Ogden over near Brigham it came--and never again has it been repeated. Where the wheels of the mighty engines "Rogers"--119 And "Jupiter"--No. 60 were seated . . . DONE!
Roberts lays the "Golden Spike" and Electra My-Lee cares for her father over the dry barrens and through the mountains to eventually become the "Girl of O'Ryan Roberts' Dreams." In between, the railroad tycoons abuse the Chinese while favoring the Irish, eventually erasing all visuals of any Chinaman from the lasting picture of the laying of the "Golden Spike." Their corrupt and scurrilous activities ignored by O'Ryan Roberts who takes Electra My-Lee as his wife.
