Narrator David Shih does a remarkable job with this audiobook about the contributions of Chinese immigrants in the building of the First Transcontinental Railroad. His deep, gentle voice is inviting, and he urges us to keep listening by pacing himself well and enunciating clearly. Shih gives Chang's story depth and heft by accentuating the trials these workers were forced to undergo. His understated approach underscores the humanity of the story, reminding us that we owe a significant accomplishment in our history to people most Americans at the time demonized as people who could not possibly become American. The story of the transcontinental railroad is familiar to many; this audiobook will serve to make that story more complete. R.I.G.
