An epic and revelatory narrative of the most important transportation technology of the modern world!

In his wide-ranging and entertaining new book, Tom Zoellner-coauthor of the New York Times-bestselling An Ordinary Man-travels the globe to tell the story of the sociological and economic impact of the railway technology that transformed the world-and could very well change it again. From the frigid trans-Siberian railroad to the antiquated Indian Railways to the Japanese-style bullet trains, Zoellner offers a stirring story of this most indispensable form of travel. A masterful narrative history, Train also explores the sleek elegance of railroads and their hypnotizing rhythms, and explains how locomotives became living symbols of sex, death, power, and romance.
