Judah the Dreamer


Theodore Judah was called crazy and a dreamer for believing that a great railroad could be built across the heart of North America, connecting the Atlantic and Pacific coasts. For most, the idea of a transcontinental railroad was indeed a dream. Judah, however, saw it merely as a challenge. Between these pages, you’ll discover Judah’s plan to traverse great prairies, vast desert, and the formidable mountains between the Midwest and California. What others deemed “bold, startling, and impracticable,” ultimately became a blueprint for one of America’s most magnificent construction projects. Originally published in 1857, this history, written in Judah’s own words, presents a first-hand account (and one viewpoint of many) that will deepen readers' understanding of this complex history.
