Fascinating history of the Union Pacific in the northwest (Oregon and Washington) that deserves its status as a classic reference work. Traces the line's predecessors from the days of John Ainsworth and the Oregon Steam Navigation Co. and Henry Villard, details the rivalries between the NP and UP as well as the cities they served, the growth of the ORR&N under E. H. Harriman (including an excellent section on the Deschutes River Canyon), the growth and demise of the branch lines, the effects of the Depression and World War II, the end of passenger service, the modernization of the 1960s and 70s, and the effects of deregulation in the 1980s. The author has provided numerous excellent maps of the main and branch lines over the years. Illustrated throughout with black and white (and a very few color) photos. With decorative end papers showing system map. Appendix lists operation and abandonment dates for lines and branches. With extensive bibliography. 336 pages with index.
