In Hell on Wheels: Wicked Towns along the Union Pacific Railroad, author Dick Kreck delves into a fascinating and obscure corner of Wild West history. The book explores the Hell on Wheels towns, which were essentially transient labor camps that moved westward with the construction of the Union Pacific Railroad. These settlements, often notorious for their lawlessness and vice, sometimes evolved into permanent towns, while others disappeared as quickly as they had appeared. Kreck's work offers a vivid portrayal of the rough and rowdy life in these fleeting frontier communities.
