Nothing Like It in the World
The Men Who Built the Transcontinental Railroad 1863-1869
Ambrose. This is the story of the men who built the transcontinental railroad: the investors who risked their money; the politicians who understood its importance; the engineers who risked their lives; and the immigrants, the defeated Confederate soldiers, and the other laborers who did the backbreaking work on the tracks. In Ambrose's hands, this enterprise, with its huge expenditure of brainpower, muscle, and sweat, comes vibrantly to life. 432 pages, 66 B&W photographs, 6"x 9", softcover.
