Great histories of old west California Nothing Like It In the World : The Men Who Built the Transcontinental Railroad 1863-1869 - by Stephen Ambrose Death Valley and the Amargosa - A Land of Illusion by Lingenfelter Civil War - the Army of the Potomac Trilogy, Civil War Trilogy, Grant Moves South, Grant Takes Command all by Bruse Catton little heavier but not bad Civil War by Shelby Foote
