Review: This historically accurate narrative allows the reader to choose from three different perspectives: a Chinese worker, an Irish laborer, or an engineer. Each option offers many opportunities to choose what will happen next, allowing students to develop perspectives and point-of-view. After basic information about the task, times, and possible outcomes are given, the reader must choose. This book can read many different ways; and like all great expository works, it provides graphic aids, glossary, index, bibliography, and even web sites.
