Although several people had considered constructing a railroad to Key West beginning in the early 1800's, it took a bold industrialist with unparalleled vision to make it happen. In 1902, Henry Flagler made the decision to extend the Florida East Coast Railway to "the nearest deepwater American port." In this book, renowned Florida historian Seth H Bramson reveals how the Key West Extension of the Flagler-owned FEC became the greatest railroad engineering and construction feat in US - and possibly world - history, an accomplishment that would cement Flagler's fame and legend for all time. Join Bramson as he recounts the years of operation of this great railroad, what it did for the Florida Keys and what it meant to the resident conchs.

Illustrated with black & white photographs & drawings throughout.
