Having arrived in America in the late 1800s from China, Shek and little Wong know that there is difficult work ahead as they take part in building a railroad across the West, but despite their efforts, they are treated more harshly than others and wonder if it is simply due to their ethnicity.
When Shek and little Wong journey to America in 1865, they have work Along with hundreds of other Chinese, the brothers are going to help build a great railroad across the West. But as days grow into months, Shek and Wong endure more than they could have imagined--bleeding hands, blasting dynamite, and treacherous avalanches. For very little pay. Are they being treated this way because of their almond-shaped eyes--because they are coolies?
Inspired by actual events in the history of the American railroad, Cooliesa reveals the harsh truth about life for thousands of Chinese laborers, while it celebrates the love and loyalty between two brothers who were determined not only to survive, but to succeed.
