150 Years - The History of Union Pacific

Awesome story!

Read if you're an American

True this is a nice advertisment for Union Pacific Railroad, but it's also a fantastic e-book that details how an integral part of U.S. History came to be. Before there was internet, cellular phones, telephones, space travel, planes, or even cars - there was Union Pacific railroad. Time and progress have historically wiped away almost all of our 'firsts' for this country, but this is a great book detailing one company and industry that have prevailed.

You don't have to be a railroad 'foamer' to enjoy this, just someone who wants to know more about our past and how this country was made along with some insights on how the railroads and Union Pacific will continue to help "build America" as their slogan states.

The price is right, the material is in depth without being over the top and the history should be shared with all of our youth and those of us that missed it the first few times. Congratulations to Union Pacific on celebrating 150 years and still maintaining a youthful persona by posting an e-book about your history on iTunes!
