Synopsis: Part of a geography series designed to introduce children to the concept of their local area. The series uses contemporary photographs to highlight possible features in their own local environment. The books consider how aspects of the local area could be made safer, and help children recognise changes in their environment. There are simple activities, such as how to draw a map.

From Kirkus Reviews: In this volume of the Dear America series, Gregory (Across the Wide and Lonesome Prairie, 1997, etc.) describes the creation of the historic transcontinental railroad through the meeting of the Union Pacific and Central Pacific railroads. Vital to western expansion, the Pacific Railroad Act of 1862 authorized the competitive laying of track by the two companies, and travel was forever changed: a journey of six months by stagecoach, or five months by wagon train, took only six or seven days by railroad. Readers learn these facts and others painlessly, witnessing the construction of the railroad through the eyes of Libby West, a forthright 14-year-old whose father is a reporter for the Rocky Mountain News in the Utah Territory. He risks being tarred and feathered whenever he and other reporters write the unvarnished truth about the railroad's progress. On the homefront, women are the keepers of hearth and home, facing the hardships of all those who followed their dreams to the frontier. Numerous facts are interwoven, archival drawings and photos are included, and history is brought to life through Libby's candid narration. (b&w photos) (Fiction. 8-14) -- Copyright ©1999, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
