"Call the Big Hook by Samuel A. Dougherty. The book is based on the authors personal experiences working for the Denver and Rio Grande Western. As stated in the preface, the book is true. The disasters presented are known fact. In a few cases, the author had to speculate and assume what actually happened, based on his years of experience. The author covers from when he was growing up as a child, up to his last days after many decades of working for the Rio Grande. From the days of steam, through the transition era, to the early diesel days. Many stories have photos, showing the devastation, following an accident. In many instances, a description of how the accident took place is explained, with reports, firsthand recollections from the crew(s), or those that survived the accident. 1984, hard bound, 256 pages, illustrated, dust jacket, mint condition, signed by the author.
