KIRKUS REVIEW

From rhyme, story, doggerel, biographical and historical backgrounds, this compiles railroad legend and truth with color and interest. Inofar as research can prove, here are the facts behind the lore of Casey Jones, Jesse James, John Henry, etc. There are the histories and personalities of famous engines; the bravery of railroad men in disasters, railroad insignia of inspirational and publicity origin, human interest stories of dogs, childbirth, wartime travel, etc. For the switch-happy try.
