Review:

“What a plum pudding this is. What raisins! What plums! All the railroad songs and poems I know are here, plus about three times as many more. A feast for railroad lovers.”—Noel Perrin



“Hedin's imaginative and thorough work fills a void. This volume should please a range of readers: academics, folklorists, railroad enthusiasts, and everyone interested in the literary and cultural impact of the iron horse and flanged wheel.”—H. Roger Grant
