    The Iron Dragon Never Sleeps. Portrays the friendship between ten-year-old Winnie Tucker, daughter of a mining engineer for the Central Pacific Railroad, and Lee Cheng, a young Chinese tea server employed by the railroad. Delcaorte, (Ages ).   "The Dragon Never Sleeps". Some of the characters are aware of where they stand in relation to this metaphor, some are not. There's a great sequence where the tragic hero of the piece, recruited by petty empire grabbing employers, puts them in their place by saying "I've dealt with thieves before."Did I mention this was the best book I read in 5/5(5).
