Hell on wheels

Gayton, Joe

Hell on wheels - Season 5, volume 1

In Season five, Cullen Bohannon finds himself a stranger in a strange land, the mountain town of Truckee, California, home to the Central Pacific Railroad. This rough railroad town teems with thousands of Chinese workers, foreign in language, culture and traditions.
