". . . . a definitive corporate biography . . . a significant contribution to our understanding of the history of the West and Southwest. Written in a style that will appeal to both the general reader and the scholar, the book is populated with a rich cast of characters from magnate E. H. Harriman to engine crews and section gangs along the Sunset Route." --Keith Bryant, author of Culture in the American Southwest
Southern Pacific, 1901-1985by Donovan L. Hofsommer, Richard C. Overton (Other)
A rip-roaring romantic thriller...The author’s meticulous attention to details, lively prose, and obvious affection for the sport of roller derby shines through in this well-paced, elbow-throwing ride.
". . . we can say that if you have any interest in the history of our industry you shouldn't miss it. It's well-written, interesting, and authoritative." --Modern Railroads
