Iron Rails, Iron Men, and the Race to Link the Nation

Iron Rails, Iron Men, and the Race to Link the Nation

Author: Martin W. Sandler Narrator: Grover Gardner Release Date: 01/09/2015

Just after gold fever swept the West-a time when people walked, sailed, or rode horses for months on end to seek their fortune-the question of faster, safer, more reliable transportation between America's East and West Coasts was posed by lawmakers and national leaders. But with 1,800 miles of seemingly impenetrable mountains, searing deserts, and endless plains between the Missouri River and San Francisco, could a transcontinental railroad be built? There were believers and there were doubters, but it was the visionaries and the doers-Theodore Judah, Grenville Dodge, Charles Crocker, James Strobridge-who made it happen. They established two railroad companies, the Central Pacific that laid the tracks eastward and the Union Pacific that moved west, setting the stage for a race between iron men with iron wills unlike anything any country had ever seen. Heroes and scoundrels populate the story of the transcontinental railroad. But it was the tens of thousands of workers who, against all odds and working almost entirely by hand, built the great road. They labored for more than six years blasting the longest tunnels that had ever been constructed, building the highest bridges that had ever been created, battling enormous snow drifts and blistering heat. And when the nation was finally linked by two bands of steel, America was changed forever.

Thoughts for Young Men

Thoughts for Young Men

Author: J. C. Ryle, J.C. Ryle Narrator: Grover Gardner Release Date: 01/07/2011

"Thoughts for Young Men," by J. C. Ryle, is a short yet passionate appeal that, a hundred years after it was written, remains relevant for today. Replete with warnings, exhortations, and instruction about this life's many trials, temptations, and common pitfalls, "Thoughts for Young Men" is biblical, practical, timeless, and wise. Ryle covers four great temptations that plague most young men: sloth, lust, love of pleasure, and peer pressure. One of the last great Puritans, Ryle tackles each subject with unsurpassed tenderness and tact. Readers will chuckle at some of the exhortations to stay away from books and newspapers that lead to sin. If only Ryle could see us now, with cable TV and the Internet. Ryle's advice will help any young man to live a more obedient, full life. "Thoughts for Young Men" is an excellent book for adolescent and teen boys to read. It encourages them to choose the high path of integrity rather than to yield to the many temptations to stray from that path. J. C. Ryle's style is one of a passionate appeal based on solid logic and the truth of the Scriptures.
