really liked it
Read in July, 2011

I liked this well written book that chronicles the building of the Western railroads--by men who were despicable--greedy, immoral, stupid, and unleashed. It went on a bit long as times, but very interesting--makes you realize that maybe capitalism has some down-sides.
