The story of the Great Western of Brazil Railway, tracing the line's history from the conception of its constituent parts, through its financially turbulent period of private operation, to the seemingly inevitable nationalisation in 1950. Throughout the book, the author places the history of the railway in the context of the social history of contemporary Brazil.
