Riassunto: A fascinating account of the dramatic story of the Kaslo & Slocan Railway - the Great Northern's narrow gauge line - in the rugged Slocan Mountains of British Columbia's West Kootenay district. Against a backdrop of silver-lead mining and the rivalry between the Great Northern and the Canadian Pacific, the K&S fought a nearly constant battle against snow storms, slides, forest fires and washouts along the daunting mountain grades. This book covers not only the K&S but also the other Great Northern lines in the area (the Kootenai Valley, Bedlington & Nelson, and Kaslo & Lardon-Duncan) and the Canadian Pacific's rival lines (the Columbia & Kootenay, the Kootenay & Arrowhead, the Nakusp & Slocan, the British Columbia Southern, and the Columbia & Western) and the Nelson & Fort Sheppard Railway. Also covers the story of the beautiful sternwheelers that connected the K&S with other Great Northern branch lines. Illustrated throughout with over 300 dramatic and historic black and white photographs (many by Richard Henry Trueman, an early Canadian photographer, to whom the book is dedicated) and illustrations (12 in full color), and 25 specially prepared maps and plans. There are equipment rosters for the Kaslo & Slocan, the Bedlington & Nelson, and the Kootenai Valley Railways, and a fleet list for the Kootenay Railway & Navigation Co. There is a K&S mileage summary and charts of operating statistics for the K&S and the Navigation Company. With bibliography and references, endnotes, and decorative end papers. 296 pages.
