Summary
Takes a look at the history of rail transportation, focusing on how it transformed societies from isolated communities that rarely communicated or traded into unified nations. From the very first passenger train to roll down the tracks in 1825 to the advent of today's high-speed trains, the railroad has been and is still one of the most vital forces in civilization. Focusing on American railroad history but touching on other countries, award-winning author Milton Meltzer shows how something as ubiquitous as the railroad is, in fact, a force that changed the world. Praise for There Comes a Time by Milton Meltzer: "Readers of every ethnicity will leave this book with a more inspired understanding of what it means to be free."
