This 380 page book is the history of the early Northern Pacific Railroad, the Sioux, and the Panic of 1873. Cooke was a banker who financed the NP, underestimated the Sioux and was unable to control Congress. He did thwart J.P. Morgan but failed to overcome scoundrels in his management team. This fascinating history was published in 2006 by the University of Oklahoma Press and is in good used condition.
