Reviews

"Walter R. Borneman's Rival Rails is a riveting history of the frenetic race to construct a railroad across the great American Southwest following the Civil War. Borneman is masterful at writing seamless narrative. Every page sings with fine writing."--Douglas Brinkley, Professor of History at Rice University and author of "The Wilderness Warrior: Theodore Roosevelt and the Crusade for America"
