K-Gr 3—Prior to May 10, 1869, travel across the United States was slow, expensive, and primarily limited to wagons and boats. The completion of the Transcontinental Railroad forever changed the way Americans travel. Locomotive follows a family as they journey west to San Francisco. Background historical highlights and additional sketches and maps provide readers information regarding the struggles and successes during the building and completion process. Beautifully detailed illustrations afford more than a glimpse into the arduous journey. Eric Dove's heartwarming, gentle mountain man vocals are the golden spike linking audio to text. History has never been so interesting.
