From Brian Flaca, the creator of the stunning book "Moonshot", comes a rich and detailed sensory exploration of America's early railroads. The full-color pages come alive with the details of the trip and the sounds, speed, and strength of the mighty locomotives of the 19th century. It is the summer of 1869, and trains, crews, and family are traveling together, riding America's brand-new transcontinental railroad. We see the work that keeps them moving, and the thrill of travel from plains to mountain to ocean, we hear the hiss of the steam, feel the heat of the engine, and watch the landscape race by. Come ride the rails, come cross the young country! Caldecott Medal Winner, Sibert Honor Book, and "New York Times" bestseller. For ages 4-10.
