Hear That Lonesome Whistle Blow

The Epic Story of the Transcontinental Railroads

Dee Brown     1977     305p     6 x 9

An often unknown and under-appreciated social history of the transcontinental railroad. Brown covers so many social tensions: from the barge workers (being displaced by railroads) and the railroad industry, to the hyper-exploitation of immigrant rail workers and the displacement, genocide and resistance of the plains indians.
