Silver Rails: The Railroads of Leadville, Colorado
Stock #: KB11010
Author: Christopher James

List Price: $59.95
Karen's Price: $49.95

Introductory Offer!

"There has been but one Leadville. Never will be another.", so said Carlye Channing Davis, one of Leadville's pioneer newspapermen. No mining town in America grew as fast, generated as much wealth, caroused as hard, made as many millionaires, and has survived as many boom-and-bust-and-boom cycles as Leadville, Colorado.

The Denver & Rio Grande, Denver South Park & pacific and the Colorado Midland fought their way to Leadville, battling the mountains, weather, finances and each other to get there, Colorado's greatest mining camp. By 1887, three railroads served Leadville, then the 2nd largest city in Colorado at 10,152 feet high in the Colorado Rockies.

Silver Rails is the story of Leadville's railroads from the camps's earliest days of tiny steam locomotives through today, when a descendant of one of the original lines still carries passengers over a right-of-way built in 1884.  This is also the story of the men and women who faced he hardships of mountains, snow, accidents, armed clashes and financial ruin to construct and operate the raillroads that helped build "But one Leadville".  375 photographs and maps, many of which have never been published before. 16 pages of full color photos, including paintings, maps and railroad ephemera. Hard cover.

The U.S. Army's Spruce Production Division in World War One.

In about one year, the Division was supplying tens of millions of board feet of lumber per month.
