Synopsis: A richly textured chronicle of the huge, brawling expansion of America during the 1880s features such prominent characters as rail magnate James Hill, future president Teddy Roosevelt, and labor pioneer Samuel Gompers. Reprint.
From Library Journal:
Dempsey, the author of the Westerns What Law There Was (Tor, 1991) and Copper (Tor, 1989), presents a sweeping historical novel about the forging of America's railroad conglomerates in the late 19th century. Zack Horton's Philadelphia family owns the Boynton Dakota Western Railroad. Railroad mogul James Jerome Hill wants to buy Horton's line in order to fulfill his dream of connecting the country by rail through the creation of the Great Northern Railroad. This aspiration is complicated by the struggle for statehood of the Northwest territories and the political climate of the 1880s. Horton, his family history rich in Westward exploration, finds this exciting idea irresistible and decides to ally himself and his railroad with James Hill's vision. Along the way, Horton becomes involved with Leah Page, a supporter of the national suffrage movement and a successful businesswoman whose ambition matches Horton's. Together, they endeavor to make Hill's railroad empire a reality. Sprinkled with cameo appearances by Amos Pillsbury, Benjamin Harrison, and Samuel Gompers, this is an enjoyable but light historical novel suitable for all public libraries.
