Gaertner begins his story in the 19th century, continues the saga through 1905 when the SP&S was incorporated, describes six decades of operations, and ends in the 1970s when the railroad was assimilated into the massive Burlington Northern system. Appendices include a roster of SP&S locomotives.

Book News Annotation:

A detailed history of one of J.J. Hill's enterprises--the line into the lucrative Willamette Valley (Portland and points south) where he could duke it out with Harriman's Southern Pacific. Many photos and charts.
