Ten Mile Day
And the Building of the Transcontinental Railroad
By Mary Ann Fraser  


Ten Mile Day

On May 10, 1869, the final spike in North America’s first transcontinental railroad was driven home at Promontory Summit, Utah. Illustrated with the author’s carefully researched, evocative paintings, here is the story of that great American adventure—and the day Charles Crocker staked $10,000 on the crews’ ability to lay a world record 10 miles of track in a single Ten Mile Day. Softcover, 10 x 8", 40 all-color pages, ages 8 - 12.
