About This Book

From poverty to great wealth and obscurity to world fame, George and Robert Stephenson's was an extraordinary joint career. While giving full treatment to their great engineering exploits, this authoritative biography also explores their domestic lives, personalities and relationships, and their involvement with the ideas of the time. The result is a rounded and highly readable portrayal of the father and son – strikingly different characters – who, it can be said, set the modern world in motion.
