From the Publisher:
All aboard! From the creator of the ?stunning? (Booklist) Moonshot, a rich and detailed sensory exploration of America?s early railroads.

It is the summer of 1869, and trains, crews, and family are traveling together, riding America?s brand-new transcontinental railroad. These pages come alive with the details of the trip and the sounds, speed, and strength of the mighty locomotives; the work that keeps them moving; and the thrill of travel from plains to mountain to ocean.

Come hear the hiss of the steam, feel the heat of the engine, watch the landscape race by. Come ride the rails, come cross the young country!

Annotation:
The tracks for the Transcontinental Railroad have been laid, and one eager family climbs aboard in Omaha for a ride: destination Sacramento. As they travel, the reader becomes privy to the people behind-the-scenes who helped early trains run, to the mechanics of running trains, and to the evocative sounds one hears en route, all clangs, hisses, and huffs. Named one of the best illustrated books of 2013 by The New York Times. Floca's LOCOMOTIVE uses blank verse alongside striking watercolors of landscapes and highly detailed trains, from the steam engine to the caboose.

Praise

"Train buffs and history fans of many ages will find much to savor in this gorgeously rendered and intelligent effort." July 2013
