Synopsis: Impeccable scholarship and lavish illustration mark this landmark study of American railroad folksong. Norm Cohen provides a sweeping discussion of the human aspects of railroad history, railroad folklore, and the evolution of the American folksong. The heart of the book is a detailed analysis of eighty-five songs, from John Henry and The Wabash Cannonball to Hell-Bound Train and Casey Jones, with their music, sources, history, and variations, and discographies. A substantial new introduction updates this edition.

Review: "Norm Cohen has not only filled a gap, he has applied mature scholarship, historical sensibility, enthusiasm, and love to produce a major work on folk lore, folk song, and the railroads' pervasive impact on popular culture".
