    This is a fascinating study of the emergence and nationalization of the railroad industry in the United States. Moody concentrates on the railroads of the South, the East Coast, and the three main transcontinental lines (Northern, Union, and Southern Pacific). It is also the story of railroad tycoons and trustbusters.

    In 1960, an upstart Pittsburgh Pirates team beat the highly favored New York Yankees in the World Series. Given the power of a Yankee roster that included Mickey Mantle, Whitey Ford, and Yogi Berra, that improbably victory did more than give long-suffering Pirates fans something to cheer about; it put Pittsburgh on the map. Though John Moody was only six years old during that magical baseball season, he was a devoted fan of the Pittsburgh team. The star pitcher for the Pirates and John's first hero was Vernon Law - an unsophisticated Idaho country boy, widely known as The Deacon, a friendly nickname derived from his strict Mormon upbringing.
