Nothing Like it in the World is the story of the men who built the transcontinental railroad--the investors who risked their businesses and money; the enlightened politicians who understood its importance; the engineers and surveyors who risked, and lost, their lives; the Irish and Chinese immigrants, the defeated Confederate soldiers, and the other laborers who did the backbreaking and dangerous work on the construction.

Ambrose writes with power and eloquence about the brave men---the famous and the unheralded, ordinary men doing the extraordinary---who accomplished the spectacular feat that made the continent into a nation.
