Union Pacific Country


Union Pacific Country First Edition is a history of the birth of the Union Pacific railroad from the concept to financing to building through the “golden spike” at Promontory.  The book includes a history of the difficulties incurred building of feeder lines.   No one before Athearn’s book has written such a complete history of the beginnings of the Union Pacific. He utilized company records and a variety of other sources to write a very readable, but scholarly account of the impact of the Union Pacific and its branch lines from the 1860s to the 1890s.
