Railroads were the country s first big business providing the nation s vital cardiovascular system, setting the tempo of life everywhere. All of it was reflected locally. . . . Rails to the North Star" is a masterful catalog of data, a treasure-house of useful information, offering one-stop shopping in a field central to Minnesota s history. All aboard! Don L. Hofsommer In the 1960s, Richard S. Prosser prepared "Rails to the North Star," the first work to trace the routes of Minnesota s railways. From the first land grants for the construction of railroads in Minnesota in 1857, to the height of the street railways of the 1920s, to the consolidation of railroad companies in the 1960s, the work captures all facets of Minnesota s railroad development. Much has changed since then, but rail lines still traverse Minnesota s landscape. Featuring a section of redrafted full-color maps, "Rails to the North Star" is a primary resource on the history of railroads in Minnesota. Richard S. Prosser (1930 2005) was a railroad enthusiast who grew up near the Milwaukee Road in south Minneapolis. Don L. Hofsommer is professor of history at St. Cloud State University. He is the author of several books, including "Minneapolis and the Age of Railways" (Minnesota, 2005)."
