Don Ball has been fascinated by railroads all his life. In this book he describes his "journey," in both words and a distillation of the thousands of superb photographs he has made, supplemented by those of many equally devoted rail photographers.
In this volume, which complements his earlier Portrait of the Rails, Don Ball plunges into "real railroad country," far from the beaten path. He highlights his own railroad adventure, really the story of his life, beginning with a nostalgic recollection of his small-town Kansas boyhood. Through the years that followed, he combed nearly every state-to photograph the last mainline steam locomotive or to get an elusive shot of some short-line railroad.
Along the way, the author's informed view of the present and future of railroads emerges. A lifelong observer of the railroad scene, he offers practical suggestions and a bold vision of what may lie ahead.
In this re-creation of both the romantic moods and workaday world of America's railroads, Don Ball's eye for drama and profound knowledge of railroading make each picture tell a story.
