loved it, gave an interesting insight into the struggles faced by UP and CP railroads
Learned some really interesting details about building the transcontinental railroad. The book is well written and seems thoroughly researched. The narration was top notch. Grover Gardner is one of the best I've heard and doesn't ever lose energy or come across as dry. Nicely done.
What did you like most about Iron Rails, Iron Men, and the Race to Link the Nation?
Very interesting facts, I was telling everyone I bumped whilst listening to this book about all the amazing things I'd just heard. I just wish the book was a little longer, it didn't feel like it breezed over anything in particular, it's just that I was enjoying it so much!
If you enjoy this subject matter and haven't seen the tv series Hell On Wheels, then you should check it out, or if you have seen the show, then this book will be of interest to you.
