World War II Shipyards by the Bay
Stock #: 12368
Author: Nicholas A. Veronico

List Price: $19.99
Karen's Price: $18.95

In the years of World War II, the San Francisco Bay Area was the geographic center of a $6.3 billion West Coast shipbuilding industry. Stretching from the Golden Gate to Vallejo to Sunnyvale, 14 Bay Area yards launched many of the ships that helped save the free world. Offering new opportunities for African Americans and women, recruiters searched the nation for workers who relocated here by the thousands. These motivated men and women delivered Liberty cargo ships like the SS Robert E. Peary, built in seven and a half days, a shipbuilding record that stands to this day. Soft Cover. more»

Wreck of the Red Arrow
Stock #: 13665
Author: Dennis P. McIlnay

List Price: $0.00
Karen's Price: $29.95

Just after 3 am on February 18, 1947, a crack passenger train of the Pennsylvania Railroad pierced the fog and frigid air in the Allegheny Mountains of Pennsylvania. The derailment killed 24 and injured 140.

Dennis McIlnay gives the passengers a voice in "The Wreck of the Red Arrow," his nonfiction book published last year. He recounts their stories along with those of their families and the doctors and respondents to the fatal scene. The book also taps into police reports and coroner inquests and includes photos from Bennington Curve, the twist that sent the train hurtling into the gorge that flanks both sides of the railway.

Traveling at an estimated speed of 65 mph, the train took the curve 35 mph faster than the mandated maximum speed limit. Based on the account of the only surviving engineman, Michael Billig, and the observations of locals who witnessed the train passing that night, speed was said to have caused the locomotive derailment.

With nine cars completely over the bank and another four turned across surrounding tracks, passengers sustained a variety of injuries, from lost fingernails to completely severed appendages. The death toll remained low, but wasn't completely reflective of the overall damage: Altoona hospitals were flooded with accident victims for days and even weeks after the crash.

McIlnay focuses on who these people were and where they were going, writing almost like a novelist. Each chapter chronicles a different angle of the accident, while allowing readers to get to know the people behind the names. Hard cover.
