About this title

Synopsis:

The building of a narrow-gauge trans-island railway in nineteenth century Newfoundland was a reckless and even desperate experiment. The island was poor, the population small, and the local politics rife with bitter sectarian conflict. Against these unpromising odds, the Newfoundland Railway came into existence on June 29, 1898, and operated successfully for well over half a century. This book offers a comprehensive history of the Newfoundland Railway, focusing especially on the railroad's early years and the important early contributions of railway engineer R.G. Reid. A chronology and glossary are also included, along with several appendices which offer eye-witness accounts of the railway as recorded in period news articles, personal correspondence, poetry, and songs.

About the Author:

Les Harding, a former academic librarian, is also the author of Holy Bingo, the Lingo of Eden, Jumpin' Jehasophat and the Land of Nod (2006) and Elephant Story: Jumbo and P.T. Barnum Under the Big Top (2000). He lives in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada. This is his 12th book.
