Rolling Home: A Cross-Canada Railroad Memoir by Tom Allen

| /

History, drama and personal memoir combine in this clear-eyed look at the changing fortunes of Canada's passenger railway, an icon in our nation's life. Tom Allen, host of CBC Radio Two's Music & Company, crosses the country east to west and north to Hudson's Bay, meeting passengers, engineers, cooks and porters in a story that is part celebration, part travelogue, and part lament.
