KIRKUS REVIEW

Railroad hobbyists will love this story of the years when the side rods danced to the thunder of the narrow gauge railroads. Western lines these, they opened up the inaccessible high country of Colorado as they built bridges and tunnels, conquered passes and met storms. The engineers, conductors, brakemen, firemen; the Indians, bandits, outlaws; the people who lived alongside; the hazards, the accidents -- all are part of the tale. Told with devotion by a man whose father knew them from the start.
