Description

“A dramatic story . . . and Les Standiford has a good deal of fun with it all.―—Washington

Post Book World“A definitive account of the engineering feat that became known as

‘Flaglerâ€s Follyâ€. . . A rousing adventure.' —Atlanta Journal-Constitution“A

fascinating and incredibly compelling account . . . I could not put it down.― —Donald Trump

“This is the remarkable true-life chronicle of one of Americaâ€s greatest engineering

achievements, and how it was all blown to bits in a few hellish hours. No novelist could have

invented such a stunning tale, or such unforgettable characters.― —Carl Hiaasen, author of

Basket Case“Last Train to Paradise is a fast-moving and gripping story about one of the most

ambitious and difficult engineering projects of the last century.― —Henry Petroski, author of

Engineers of Dreams“This is a wonderfully told tale, a strange and compelling story about a

strange and compelling part of the world. With sharp, evocative reporting, the book captures an

era, the Florida landscape, and the very human dream of doing the impossible.― —Susan

Orlean, author of The Orchid Thief“Last Train to Paradise is an extraordinary achievement,

a nonfiction book as exciting and finely written as a first-rate novel, with the narrative drive of a

author of Blackwater Sound and Under Cover of Daylight“Only one thing could have

Standiford has given us a rousing—a deeply sobering—story of this 1935 collision between

hubris and hurricane in the Florida Keys.― —Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed

“Last Train to Paradise is a mesmerizing account of Gilded Age titan Henry Flagler and his

extraordinary dream to build a railroad across the sea. Henry Flaglerâ€s quest to build an

overseas railroad has all the elements of a classic Greek tragedy, and Les Standiford has

captured both the man and his times with pitch perfect grace.― —Connie May Fowler, author

of Before Women Had Wings and When Katie Wakes Read more Last Train to Paradise is

acclaimed novelist Les Standiford's fast-paced and gripping true account of the extraordinary

construction and spectacular demise of the Key West Railroad--one of the greatest engineering

feats ever undertaken, destroyed in one fell swoop by the Labor Day hurricane of 1935. Brilliant

and driven entrepreneur Henry Flagler's dream fulfilled, the Key West Railroad stood as a


magnificent achievement for more than twenty-two years, heralded as 'the Eighth Wonder of the

World.' Standiford brings the full force and fury of 1935's deadly 'Storm of the Century' and its

sweeping destruction of 'the railroad that crossed an oc
