The Race To Connect the Country Has Begun
20,000 workers, 1,776 miles, two railroads, one destination.
Join Jack and his sister Sarah on the quest to build the transcontinental railroad. Along the way, kids will meet Native Americans, overcome natural disasters, and outwit a gang of six real-life outlaws determined to sabotage the railroad. As kids immerse themselves in this uniquely American adventure, they will learn history, geography, social studies and science.
How Was the Wild West Tamed? One Rail at a Time.
The Transcontinental Railroad was one of the most amazing engineering feats of its time. It took 20,000 men six years to cross 1,776 miles of the most difficult and dangerous terrain in North America. Step into the chief engineer's shoes and start laying track. Keep your eyes and ears open because danger may lie just over the next hill. Luckily, you have Jack, his sister Sarah, and three real-life western heroes to help you along.
