4 Stars: "I really enjoyed it" is an accurate statment. The human contribution to building a railroad across the country was an amazing feat - reading about the magnitude of the individual projects, digging several inches/ day on an 800' tunnel, helped me to better appreciate this accomplishment and what it did for our country. There is an interesting accompanying story of financial scandal that resonates with today. Who am I to judge Stephen Ambrose, but there were a number of occasions that I realized he was repeating a very specific thought or illustration. I suppose it may have been purposeful, but it confused me on time relationships within the book. It was almost as if he'd been told by the publisher to lengthen the book and there was too much cutting and pasting!
