Ron Brown is Canada's leading literary authority on the history of Canada's railways, particularly those now-lost branches from the golden age of steam that once ran like veins and arteries throughout the country. This special five-book bundle collects several of his titles, including: In Search of the Grand Trunk
, which takes a close look at Ontario's railway heritage in the late 19th and early 20th centuries; the poignant The Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore
, an examination of the railroad's impact on communities - when it leaves town; and Rails Across Ontario
, Rails Across the Prairies
, and the new Rails to the Atlantic
, which trace the development of rail across the country and its economic and social impact. Brown's books are entertaining but also meticulously researched. This bundle is a treasure trove for the railway enthusiast.
