DUST JACKET INTRODUCTION:
The High, Dry and Dusty relates in pictures and text the rise and decline of the Chicago & North Western Railway's main line north and west from Fremont, Neb. From its days as a pioneer railroad builder that left its economic mark on the High Plains and Black Hills region, the C&NW across Nebraska, South Dakota and Wyoming came to symbolize a prairie railroad trunk line caught up in the dramatic changes that have occurred in late Twentieth Century railroading.
Across the semi-arid regions served by North Western rolled the trains on rails which came to be known by C&NW employees and railroad enthusiasts alike as "the Cowboy Line." Along with the colorful name came a colorful heritage. The annals of the C&NW western lines are filled with facts that include the last run of a C&NW-owned steam locomotive, the longest manifest freight run to operate on the North Western system, and the never-to-be-realized role which the Cowboy Line played in the creation of today's modern coal-hauling rail industry in the West. The High, Dry and Dusty ultimately details the final years of the C&NW's Western Division, the spirit of those employees who worked for it, and the unique character of the region.
