About this title


Fascinating history of the construction of two railroads -- the White Pass & Yukon and the Copper River & Northwestern -- under the guidance of a brilliant engineer named Erastus Corning Hawkins, including an extensive discussion of the building of the "Million Dollar Bridge" over the Copper River. The book brings to life the lively personalities involved in these amazing feats, both the workers on the ground and the fearless financial backers, such as the Guggenheims and their Alaska Syndicate. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos and maps. 195 pages with index.
