Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Taken from Chapter 2: Evolution of the Engine The first locomotives were only experiments. Many people doubted that steam engines would ever be powerful enough to be useful. They even set up a race between a locomotive and a horse in order to prove that a steam engine was not as fast as a horse. The horse won the race, but only because the locomotive broke down halfway along the track.

Review:

This series shows the settlers' homes and way of life and the changes they represented to the native population. Good coverage of each topic will make these books useful for research -- Resource Links, Feb. 1999
