The West the Railroads Made

Carlos Arnaldo Schwantes

The construction of railways across the open plains of North America transformed the nation, setting up rivalries between gateway cities such as St Louis and Chicago; rapidly growing the settlements of the west coast, including Los Angeles and Seattle; and transforming much of the territory in between. This analysis of how railways shaped the American West draws on the archives of the University of Missouri's Barriger Railroad Library and is illustrated with contemporary maps, archive photographs and period ephemera.
