The Railway Diary of Kate Cameron, Yale, British Columbia, 1882
Kate's father is a builder for the Canadian Pacific Railway as it snakes it's way across the mountains and through the Fraser Canyon. Everyone is excited about the "Iron Horse", but building the railroad is a treacherous undertaking. Kate is always thinking about her father's safety, and the Accident Hospital next door is a constant reminder of the hazards the railroad brings.
There is tremendous excitement surrounding the creation of the transcontinental railroad despite the danger as Kate, her town, and all of Canada eagerly await its completion.
