Publisher Comments:

"During this fast-paced journey, WILD WEST TECH takes a cowcatcher to caboose look at the machines that steamed across America during the 1800s. Hear intriguing tales of the dreamers and schemers who made fortunes as a result of the new system, as well as the stories of those who did all the backbreaking work to build it. Learn about the revolutionary tools and techniques used to build the tracks, bridges, and tunnels through mountains of solid granite, and explore the technology that was developed to make trains less vulnerable to bandits and train wrecks."
