The beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina have inspired and energized Steve Little since his teen years in the 1960s, providing the amazing history of railroad construction told in Tunnels, Nitro and Convicts.

This true story that started in 1875 is a vital part of the history not only of McDowell County, NC but for the entire state of North Carolina.  The Civil War ended 10 years earlier and the golden spike  completing the trans-continental railroad was hammered 6 years earlier ... but the long-planned major trunk-line railroad through North Carolina to link the western mountains with the Atlantic coast was still not built!  Read Tunnels, Nitro and Convicts to find out why, what was done about it, and who did it!
