by Tony Holtzman

In The Railroad, Book Two of Tony Holtzman’s Adirondack Trilogy, the action shifts from logging to the railroad as it advances across the Adirondacks, bringing tragedy to the Carter family while transforming the logging industry and accelerating tourism.
The Carter family and others from Axton Landing (Book One) enter a new phase as the railroad advances inexorably across the Adirondacks in the 1880s, further destroying forests as it transforms the way logging is done. Tragedy lurks as the Carters grapple with improving their own lives and the lives of those around them.
