What readers are saying about my C&O:

"Great book, wonderful reference. I have it out all the time."

"The captions are full of detail. They are informative not just what I can already see from the picture."
Recommended by Tom Dixon, of the Chesapeake and Ohio Historical Society:

Comments from the Writer's Digest judge:

"Congratulations on writing and publishing your book! The cover design and packaging are very polished and professional. You have clearly done a great deal of research on this railway and your passion for presenting this information to your audience is quite evident. Great job organizing the material in a clear manner. I appreciated the many color photographs which are reproduced with a high visual quality. Good job with grammar and proofreading of the interior of the book.  
The formatting and layout are particularly attractive."
