This Wild West saga focuses not on gunslingers and cowboys, but on two railroad tycoons who are battling to develop the American Southwest. The colorful cast of characters makes for enjoyable listening, and John Bedford Lloyd carries the narration along nicely, even during the author's occasionally overly detailed descriptions of legal maneuverings and mechanical details. He varies his pace and tone to suit the story. As there are few extended quotations, he wisely avoids adopting accents to identify speakers. Most Americans think the effort to open up the West ended with the transcontinental railroad. In truth, the battle was only beginning. That's where this story starts.
