ATA Book Club: Ghost Train Through the Andes by Michael Jacobs
A tale for all the armchair travelers amongst us. In a deeply personal journey, the author follows his grandfather's footsteps as an engineer building a railway through the Andes at the turn of the last century. Reading letters his grandfather wrote to his grandmother, 9000 miles away, Jacobs discovers a remarkable story of hardship, deprivation and enduring love. Climbing through ghostly, lunar-like scenery towards the snow-capped summits of the Andes, he follows the route of his grandfather's railway - across giant rocky plateaux, through terrifyingly steep gorges and valleys of tropical lushness, and past grim mining townships buffeted by winds, rain and snow - to reveal an extraordinary love story.
