Reviews
The publisher, Northern Illinois University Press , January 6, 1998

In this first in-depth study of the North Western, Grant sheds light on the
inner workings of a railroad that has long intrigued railroad enthusiasts. The
saga of the North Western began in 1848 when the Galena & Chicago
Railroad ran the first trains west from Chicago, eventually expanding into a
9,000-mile system. With a lively narrative and 173 illustrations that include
photographs and maps, this book will engage historians, collectors,
modelers, photographers, and those interested in the development of
Chicago and the Midwest.

"A highly readable but serious history of the North Western." --David
Young, Chicago Tribune

Reviews
From Booklist , January 1, 1994
After independence, the Appalachian Mountains just as imposingly barred
the way of infant capitalism as they had, in the colonial era, formed
political limits. And the impediment called forth construction schemes--of
turnpikes, canals, then railroads--each favored in turn by the competing
cities of Philadelphia, New York, and Baltimore. The latter city's financiers
of the 1820s settled on the newfangled iron horse to connect with the Ohio River valley, and here is a comprehensive account of the legendary B & O, which took 25 years to build across
Maryland's rugged topography. Dilts recounts all aspects of surveying, civil
engineering, steam locomotion, and labor. A major social undertaking,
celebrated by civic pomp as various sections opened, the B & O was a
reified metaphor for the age's idea of Progress. Anchored in sober fact,
adorned by 80 photos of people, bridges, and tunnels, this is a railroad
history that can't be bested in its special arena. Gilbert Taylor

Synopsis
This account of the planning and building of the most important and
influential early American railroad, the Baltimore and Ohio, is an essential
contribution not only to railway history but also to the broader history of the
development of the US in the first half of the 19th century. 80 illus. 5 maps.

Booknews, Inc. , March 1, 1994
A fascinating, richly illustrated account of the planning and building of the
first long-distance, general purpose railroad in the US. By allowing those
who built the railroad to speak for themselves through their own and
contemporary accounts, it emphasizes the many types of men who were
involved: promoters, financiers, politicians, lawyers, newspaper editors,
fixers and bagmen, civil engineers, inventors and mechanics, foreman,
contractors, and laborers. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland,
Or.
