Ten Mile Day and the Building of the Transcontinental Railroad

Ten Mile Day And The Building Of The Transcontinental Railroad - Mary Ann Fraser Nice twist on the story of the Transcontinental Railroad. The story of the day the RR laid 10 miles of track and broke a record. Great illustrations, and enough detail for kids to understand how big this feat was. Side bars give more information on people and other components of the project.Recommend for: Older elementary age.
