This is the Nonfiction story of the man who built the transcontinental railroad-the famous and the unheralded, ordinary men doing the extraordinary-who accomplish the spectacular feat that made the continent into a nation. I found this book very interesting. Tells about little known people who helped build the railroad - some with unterior motives.

My husband just finished reading . . . and enjoyed it! He laughed several times and also shared several incidents with me. And he'll remember all the history tidbits!!!

One of the best books I've read recently. The writer presents it as if it were a J. Patterson , Alex cross story, even though you know the final result. But the stories in it that are now so forgotten makes it a great thriller.
