Summary, etc.:
"A transcontinental railroad-a railroad spanning the United States-was once thought to be impossible. But after a practical route was found, about 1,800 miles (2,900 km) of track were laid from Nebraska to California in just 6 years. This railroad changed the nation, connecting the East and West Coast and making travel and communication easier than ever. Readers will be fascinated by the amazing tale of this railroad, and especially the striking photographs that support the accessible text."-- Provided by publisher.
