Timberdoodle's review
 
The Building of the Transcontinental Railroad recounts this historical event in dramatic, graphic novel format. In 1859, Sacramento engineer Theodore Judah decided to build a railroad to connect California with the eastern United States. Helped by investors, Judah began the Central Pacific Railroad Company. A second railroad, the Union Pacific, was begun in the East. The meeting of the two formed the Transcontinental Railroad and changed the way Americans traveled and transported goods. Inside this book, readers will encounter the events, people, and actions that shaped the building of the Transcontinental Railroad.
