"The Honorable Senator Sage-Brush," a shrewd Western boss all men will appreciate, is the central character of the novel of that name by Francis Lynde. The author of "The Price" shows him manipulating political forces in the storm of reform that threatens his control. Senator Sage-Brush rules the State largely through his hold on an intersecting railroad. The strength and humanity of his personality come into play when his control is threatened by a reform wave which sweeps his son into the apparent opposition. This son is the hero of the novel; but to many the large character of Sage-Brush, strong of feeling downright with common sense, and fundamentally just, will be the great attraction. The opening and closing of the breach between himself and his son is touching and true. Source: The Book Buyer, October, 1913.

This edition of the book contains the original frontpiece, rejuvenated, and 10 additional railroading illustrations that are unique to this edition of the book.
