Nothing Like It In the World was written by Stephen Ambrose, a writer of historical literature books, and is a #1 New York Times Bestseller about the building of the Transcontinental Railroad. The book is about the period of the railroad from 1863 to 1869. The railroad spanned from Omaha, Nebraska to Sacramento, California. The book is very detailed and explains all the processes involved in building a railroad that is more than 1,700 miles long and spanning through 6 of the current United States of America.

The book has a very good account of the monetary point of view - from how it was spent and earned and the difficulties in not having enough money (the railroads were almost always in debt), to the multiple plots to gain more money through stocks and bonds by the different people of the railroad, as you could expect with a multi-billion dollar project.

The railroads were, surprisingly enough paid by the government with bonds because of the importance of the railroad, most likely without this financial help from the government the whole railroad would have been a failure. Both of the railroads were paid in bonds by the miles of track they laid in a certain period of time. In fact there was a time when the CP flooded the market with its stocks to make extra and instant money off of them to buy more ties and other products like nails and snow sheds.

The CP had a hard time getting money for a while because all the mountains they had to blast through were slowing them down a lot (there were more than 30 mountains they had to blast through to get to the meeting point)." "Marriages are made Nothing Like It In the World heaven," replied the elderly lady. Prince Vasili passed by, seeming not to hear the ladies, and sat down on a sofa in a far corner of the room.

He closed his eyes and seemed to be dozing. His head sank forward and then he roused himself. "Aline," he said to his wife, "go and see what they are about.

" The princess went up to the door, passed by it with a dignified and indifferent air, and glanced into the little drawing room. Pierre and Helene still sat talking just as before. "Still the same," she said to her husband. Prince Vasili frowned, twisting his mouth, his cheeks quivered and his face assumed the coarse, unpleasant expression peculiar to him. Shaking himself, he rose, threw back his head, and with resolute steps went past the ladies into the little drawing room.

With quick steps he went joyfully up to Pierre. His face was so unusually triumphant that Pierre rose in alarm on seeing it. "Thank God!" said Prince Vasili. "My wife has told Nothing Like It In the World everything!- (He put one arm around Pierre and the other around his daughter. )- "My dear boy. Lelya. I am very pleased. " (His voice trembled.

) "I loved your father. and she will make you a good wife.
