This is the story of Ma Kiley, a Texas-born railroad telegraph operator who worked as a "boomer" in the American West, Mexico, and Canada in the early 1900s. Although autobiographical writings by women telegraph operators are rare, Ma Kiley left a richly detailed and moving personal account of her life and work in "The Bug and I, " first published by Railroad Magazine in 1950. This book also includes an introduction which provides background on telegraphy, a little known area of women's work. It attempts to fill in the "missing history" of women in telegraphy - how women gained access to the field of telegraphy, how they were viewed by their male co-workers, and how women operators struggled to establish their own identities.

For most of the 19th and much of the 20th centuries, railroads dominated American transportation. They transformed life and captured the imagination. Yet by 1907 railroads had also become the largest cause of violent death in the country, that year claiming the lives of nearly twelve thousand passengers, workers, and others. In Death Rode the Rails Mark Aldrich explores the evolution of railroad safety in the United States by examining a variety of incidents: spectacular train wrecks, smaller accidents in shops and yards that devastated the lives of workers and their families, and the deaths of thousands of women and children killed while walking on or crossing the street-grade tracks. The evolution of railroad safety, Aldrich argues, involved the interplay of market forces, science and technology, and legal and public pressures. He considers the railroad as a system in its entirety: operational realities, technical constraints, economic history, internal politics, and labor management. Aldrich shows that economics initially encouraged American carriers to build and operate cheap and dangerous lines. Only over time did the trade-off between safety and output—shaped by labor markets and public policy—motivate carriers to develop technological improvements that enhanced both productivity and safety. A fascinating account of one of America's most important industries and its dangers, Death Rode the Rails will appeal to scholars of economics and the history of transportation, technology, labor, regulation, safety, and business, as well as to railroad enthusiasts.

Rodeo, located on the east shore of San Pablo Bay, was envisioned as the meatpacking center of the West when it was established by the Union Stockyard Company in 1890. That vision failed, but the town continued attracting residents for jobs at the nearby Hercules powder works, Selby smelter, and Oleum refinery. By the 1940s, a war-based industrial buildup made Rodeo’s population surge, and this was followed by a postwar boom in housing and retail construction. During these prosperous years, Rodeo was a regional hub for fishing and boating. Times have changed, but the images in these pages recall Rodeo’s early years—the marina, businesses and homes, schools, civic officials, and local industry, as well as the town’s celebrations, such as the Holy Ghost and Aquatic Festivals.
