NOTHING LIKE IT IN THE WORLD The Men Who Built the Transcontinental Railroad 1863-1869

by | Read by Jeffrey DeMunn

History • 15.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

"The locomotive was the first great triumph over time and space. After it came, and after it crossed the continent of North America, nothing could ever again be the same." Ambrose honors the men who brought the nation together East and West. Chinese and Irish, veterans of the Confederate and Union armies, they spanned the prairies, pierced the Rocky Mountains with black powder and by hand. This audio edition includes a stirring introduction by the author himself. DeMunn's full-text reading is clear and well modulated. The book is chocked with piquant detail. Did you know, for instance, that Abraham Lincoln had imagined the Transcontinental Railroad before he ever saw a train? B.H.C. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 01]
