For nearly half of the nation's history, the steam locomotive was
the outstanding symbol for progress and power. It was the literal
engine of the Industrial Revolution, and it played an instrumental
role in putting the United States on the world stage. While the
steam locomotive's basic principle of operation is simple,
designers and engineers honed these concepts into 100-mph passenger
trains and 600-ton behemoths capable of hauling mile-long freight
at incredible speeds. American Steam Locomotives is a thorough and
engaging history of the invention that captured public imagination
like no other, and the people who brought it to life.
