THIS BOOK is for anyone who was ever fascinated by the railroad. A careful selection of images, combined with thoughtful commentary makes The Spirit of Steam appealing to a modern, general audience.
The commentary is special, with challenging and insightful ideas about the significance of the railroad in twentieth-century life. In concise, lively essays, the author provides the larger, essential context so often missing in books of this kind. This is a volume that uses the power of the image - and puts images and interpretation together in a fresh way.
The volume features the work of some of North America's finest photographers of the railroad, including Shirley Burman, Jim Gallagher, John Gruber, Philip Hastings, John Helbok, Joel Jensen, Richard Kindig, Nicholas Morant, Ed Nowak, Jim Shaughnessy, Richard Steinheimer, and Ron Ziel. Their evocative imagery of both trains and the people who ran them, combined with the concise, lively essays, offer a fresh and powerful perspective on the significance of the railroad in the twentieth century.
