The PAD&W began as an international railway, running from Port Arthur to Fort William,  Westfort, Slate River, Stanley, Silver Creek, Hymers, Silver Mountain, Whitefish Lake, North Lake, Leeblain and Gunflint terminating at Paulson Iron Mine in Minnesota. This is the story of the political intrigue that swirled around its beginnings, and the fascinating individuals who guided its destiny.

Elinor Barr has written about many aspects of Northwestern Ontario's past including railroading in Ignace, logging along the Pigeon River, mining at Silver Islet, the mystique of White Otter Castle, and the Swedes who founded the Scandinavian Home Society. She is  a graduate of Lakehead University and a member of The Writers' Union of Canada. This is her sixth book.
