Description - The Railway Navvies by Terry Coleman

Pick, shovel, dynamite: the classic account of the men who built the railways.


This is the definitive story of the men who built the railways - the unknown Victorian labourers who blasted, tunnelled, drank and brawled their way across nineteenth-century England.

Preached at and plundered, sworn at and swindled, this anarchic elite endured perils and disasters, and carved out of the English countryside an industrial-age architecture unparalleled in grandeur and audacity since the building of the cathedrals.

Buy The Railway Navvies by Terry Coleman from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
