9780140055429: A History of the Men Who Made Railway Navvies

The story of the men who built the railways, the unknown labourers of the 19th century. Preached at and plundered, sworn at and swindled, these people endured perils and disasters and carved out of the English countryside a new iron-age architecture.

About the Author:

Terry Coleman is a historian, novelist, and award-winning reporter. His books include biographies of Olivier, Nelson, and the history of British and Irish emigration, Passage to America. His novel Southern Cross was a worldwide bestseller.

Review:

'Coleman's pioneering work of industrial history is handsomely illustrated with prints and photographs from the time with a new introduction from the most distinguished recent historian of the railways' The National (Glasgow). 'Coleman's vivid and perceptive study of Victorian railway navvies is something of a landmark' Guardian. 'A brilliant book about a magnificent and vanished race of men' Listerner. 'Absorbing detail presented so readably that no one with a spark of imagination and a twinge of interest in people could fail to find this book a pleasure' Evening Standard.
