More CP Railroad books online

From: "Dan Anderson"

I saw your page on online books about the transcontinental railroad.

I have three 19th century books online related to this subject that you may want to add to your list:

Lester, John Erastus. The Atlantic to the Pacific: What to See, and How to See It. Shepard and Gill, Boston, Mass., 1873.

Jackson, Helen Hunt. Bits of Travel at Home. Roberts Brothers, Boston, Mass., 1878.

Greeley, Horace. An Overland Journey from New York to San Francisco in the Summer of 1859 by Horace Greeley. C. M. Saxton, Barker & Co., New York, 1860. Strongly advocates for a transcontinental railroad and travels the proposed route.
