      "In Ties, Rails, and Telegraph Wires, Dale Martin takes us on a delightfully written and beautifully illustrated journey back in time, into an era across Montana and the West in which railroads were the vanguards of the modern world. From small-town depots to Montana's large urban centers, Martin's journey celebrates and carefully documents the profound visual, social, and technological impress of the railroad upon the western language and those who called it home. Above all, Martin reminds us how important the railroad was in shaping the West we know today."                 - William Wyckoff, Professor of Geography, Montana State University, and author of How to Read the American West: A Field Guide
