Summary

A thoroughly revised and expanded successor to Alfred Runte'¬"s Trains of Discovery: Western Railroads and the National Parks, the new edition now includes protected landscapes and historical sites east of the Mississippi made possible or influenced by railroads: the Hudson River Valley; Delaware Water Gap; Harpers Ferry; Indiana Dunes; Gettysburg; Steamtown; and Shenandoah, Great Smoky Mountains, and Acadia National Parks. Illustrated with paintings, posters, photographs, and artifacts from major libraries and public archives, as well as America'¬"s railroads and the author'¬"s private collection, this book is a sight to behold as well as a wonderful, nostalgic armchair read.
