Reviews - What do customers think about Snow on the Rails: Tales of Heartland Railroading?

Told in a folksy, down-to-earth style  Mar 5, 2004
Snow On The Rails: Tales Of Heartland Railroading by Dennis Boyer brings together bits of railroading legend and lore that recreate the human emotion behind the legacy of the Midwest railway system. Told in a folksy, down-to-earth style, this engaging railroading anthology is a most enjoyable read and is most especially recommended for railroad enthusiasts and railway history buffs. No personal or community library Railroad History collection can be considered comprehensive without the inclusion of Dennis Boyer's Snow On The Rails!
A look at railroading characters  Jan 19, 2004
Heartland railroaders are a hardy breed, tempered by the elements and the rough and tumble of the rail industry.

Here in "Snow on the Rails: Tales of Heartland Railroading," folktale collector and outdoor writer Dennis Boyer explores the culture and characters that represent railroading in the Midwest. Boyer takes his extensive knowledge of legend and lore and creates accessible literary form which reveals the poignant human moments that echo in this massive web of steel and machines.

Each story explores a place and a person that is uniquely Midwest in flavor. Train crews, mechanics, track laborers, and station workers take us to rail yards, lonesome prairies, decrepit hotels, deep forests, and industrial cities.

From labor strikes to cattle drives, from the fine linen of dining cars to the grime of the big railroad shop complexes - the full range of behind the scenes train and track tales are brought to life for rail fans and readers of heartland lore.
