Preface
Civilization began when men first communicated and traded products with each other. The footpaths of primitive people, the highways of the ancients, the turnpikes and canals of our forefathers, and the steel tracks of the present day are monuments which mark the progress of mankind from the old barbarisms to the present civilization.
The invention of the steam engine and its application to transportation did much to hasten man's progress in his upward climb to present day standards of living. Railroad development was filled with romance and historical significance which no student of social change could afford to neglect. Probably nothing in the history of the past century was more intimately connected with the rapid progress of nations and the benefits of man's welfare than the steam engine.
RAILS OVER THE HORIZON is a brief and accurate account of the development of transportation and of the steam engine. The book is designed for the young students in the late intermediate grades who will of course be interested in the facts of the subject; and for the reflective minded adult who may find in it much which will help him to interpret historical incidents.
