Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The American Railway is an exciting look at the railroad industry in the 1880s and how it developed as the business boomed. Discover detailed texts about how railroads were built, the types of railways, the lives of railway workers, the various ways the railway affected political and business economics, as well as the safety precautions of people who rode or worked with the railway system. Youll also find over 200 hand-drawn illustrations—visual representations of great steam engines, graceful bridges, life in a Pullman car, railway accidents, views of track construction, and portraits of railroad pioneers and magnates of the times—and stories from the mouths of real rail workers. Learn how far we've come from such humble beginnings, and grow to have a new found appreciation for the railways that paved our countrys future.

Synopsis:

An in-depth description of the origin and expansion of the railroad across America.
