about this item

This richly comprehensive history by the self-proclaimed "low-brow" historian features more than 100 photographs and contemporary prints of America's railway system. A dramatic chronicle of the backbone of the country's commerce and industry ? involving struggles against nature, corrupt politicians, and other obstacles ? the colorful account abounds in tales of ingenuity and colossal achievement.
