Beyond the Rails by Jack Tyler

BookCoverImage - LargeIn the spring of 1882, a young man arrives in Mombasa, Kenya with a plan to change the world of science.

A man ahead of his time.

Nicholas Ellsworth is a botanist fresh from Cambridge whose mission is to catalog the flora of Africa, and unlock its medicinal secrets for the benefit of mankind. Intrigued by a lovely young woman who happens to be an airship pilot of extraordinary skill, he falls in with a crew of expatriates, misfits and castoffs all, whose cargo blimp, the Kestrel, carries them from one adventure to the next as they try to eke out a living moving all manner of cargo out beyond the rails.

Their captain, a disgraced former military commander, is employer, protector, and father-figure to the young pilot, the Anglo-Prussian engineer, and a fugitive American gunslinger whose mysterious past could catch up with him at any time.

Climb aboard and hang on for a thrilling ride through an alternate history.
