Product Description

Vermont farm boy, forty-niner, entrepreneur, and philanthropist, Frederick Billings influenced many of the greatest enterprises of the 19th century. In one of the boldest financial strokes of the era, he rescued the mighty Northern Pacific Railroad from almost certain failure, enabling it to span the continent and open up the Northwest. Many unusual photographs, including early pictures of California and of Billings, Montana, and Woodstock, Vermont, illustrate this biographical profile. ©The Woodstock Foundation, Inc.
