The Horse Who Helped Build the Great Railroad

By Shirley Raye Redmond
Illustrated by Lois Bradley

This is the true story of a sightless workhorse who helped build America's transcontinental railroad in 1863-1869. Telegraph operators tracked the rail workers' daily progress by asking, “Where's Blind Tom today?”
The horse became a minor celebrity as reporters around the country picked up the story of the tenacious blind horse. As informative as it is entertaining, this charmingly illustrated book includes a map of the railroad route, a “Things to Know” page, and a list of museums and Web sites with information about railroad history.
