Locomotive

Locomotive

In the summer of 1869 massive locomotives ruled the rails, and introduced America to the wild landscapes of a very much unsettled West. In this Caldecott Medal honoree book, the trains, their crews, and families from all walks of life are traveling together, riding Americas brand-new transcontinental railroad.

With the mighty Locomotive as it's engine, this beautifully illustrated book comes alive with details of the trip; the work that keeps them moving; and the thrill of travel from plains to mountain to ocean. Hear the hiss of the steam, feel the heat of the engine, watch the landscape race by on the rails of the trans-continental.
