    An internationally acclaimed environmentalist & environmental historian, Alfred Runte came to the subject of railroads while exploring the American land. Born & raised in Binghamton, New York, he began his travels aboard the legendary Phoebe Snow, viewing the beautiful & varied American landscape from his window seat. In 1959, following the death of his father, his mother took the family west on a 10,000-mile camping trip, visiting the national parks. Years later while pursuing his PhD at the University of California, he realized that the parks had been formed by railroads. America's identity is the land, & our love for the land was first made possible by railroads.
