About the Author:

Terry Coleman is a historian, novelist, and award-winning reporter. His books include biographies of Olivier, Nelson, and the history of British and Irish emigration, Passage to America. His novel Southern Cross was a worldwide bestseller.

Review:

'Coleman's pioneering work of industrial history is handsomely illustrated with prints and photographs from the time with a new introduction from the most distinguished recent historian of the railways' The National (Glasgow). 'Coleman's vivid and perceptive study of Victorian railway navvies is something of a landmark' Guardian. 'A brilliant book about a magnificent and vanished race of men' Listerner. 'Absorbing detail presented so readably that no one with a spark of imagination and a twinge of interest in people could fail to find this book a pleasure' Evening Standard.
