Especially popular with railroad buffs fascinated by the Wellington Disaster in Stevens Pass and the Great Northern Railway's efforts to even put a railroad across the North Cascades Mountains. Includes construction of the railroad's Eight Mile Tunnel to remedy weather problems, the conversion of Leavenworth town into a popular tourist-oriented Bavarian village, early ski area construction, Forest Service problems, and people. Originally part of the pass series of The Mountaineers Books and sold out completely, Caxton Press re-published a new edition of the book that enjoys ongoing popularity.
