Summary
This is the story of the men who built the transcontinental railroad. The U.S. government pitted two companies - the Union Pacific and the Central Pacific railroads - against each other in a race for funding, encouraging speed over caution. At its peak the work force approached the size of Civil War armies, with as many as 15,000 workers on each line
