Information
First edition, first print hardback of HEAR THAT LONESOME WHISTLE BLOW (Railroads in the West) by Dee Brown and published by Holt, Rinehart and Winston in 1977. Signed by Brown on the main title page. Full numberline 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1.

The book is in very good condition (black cloth boards with gold lettering to spine) with some light general rubbing to the boards and spine and with light creasing to the top of the spine. The book is in a very good- unclipped dust jacket (in an archival sleeve) that has light rubbing to the corners of the front cover and bottom of the back cover along with light creasing and tiny open tears to the top and bottom of the spine and bottom of the back cover. Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears or other inscriptions.

In February 1854 the first railroad from the East reached the Mississippi; by the end of the nineteenth century five major transcontinental railroads linked the East Coast with the Pacific Ocean and thousands of miles of tracks criss-crossed the West, a vast and viral land just a few years before.


The story of this extraordinary undertaking is one of breathtaking technological ingenuity, other-worldy idealism, and all-too-worldy greed...

Dee Brown tells the whole incredible saga in Hear That Lonesome Whistle Blow. The author of numerous excellent books on western American history, Mr. brown is best known for his best-selling Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee and The Westerners

283 pages including several black & white illustrations, plus Notes, Bibliography and Index.
