Rival Rails (review underway)

The good folks at Random House were kind enough to forward a copy of Walter R. Borneman’s book to us for review.  I’m happy to say that am about 1/3 done and loving the book.  Here’s what I say so far…

“Walter paints a complete backdrop for the development of America’s Greatest Transcontinental Railroad that weaves together people, events and historical developments that I had previously thought were unconnected into a full canvas depicting the fast-paced growth of  nation.”

I can’t wait to continue reading. I’ll have more as time permits.
