This 20th-anniversary collector's edition celebrates the continued success of one of North America's most fascinating railway histories. "McCulloch's Wonder" is the story of the Kettle Valley Railway in British Columbia's interior, often called the most difficult and expensive line of track on earth. This was a railway that turned straight into a massive wall of mountains and challenged nature. It dominated newspaper headlines for a quarter of a century and helped contribute to the rise and fall of half a dozen governments. Bar fie Sanford's lively account explores the birth and destruction of this railway and the fascinating life of Andrew McCulloch, the man behind the dream.
