On May 10, 1869, the final spike in North America's first transcontinental railroad was driven home at Promontory Summit, Utah. In the race to reach the Summit, Central Pacific crews had to blast through mountains, brave avalanches, and sweat through the dessert. In time they had become so efficient, well organized, and hardy that their boss, Charles Crocker, staked $10,000 on their ability to lay a world record ten miles of track in one day. Illustrated with Fraser's carefully researched, evocative paintings, here is the story of a great American adventure. Come Climb Aboard!

VERY ORIGINAL STORY!
