About the Author

Larry Haeg is former executive vice president of corporate communications for Wells Fargo & Company and a former broadcast journalist.


I first read about the Northern Pacific Corner when I was ten years old. When I opened my office on January 1, 1962, I put on the wall a framed copy of the New York Times of May 10, 1901, describing the fateful prior day. Larry Haeg now tells the full story, and I enjoyed every word of it.
" -Warren Buffett

"This book is a page-turner. Even for the reader that knows what is about to happen, Larry Haeg is able to convey a sense of excitement about the events' unfolding." -H. Roger Grant, author of Railroads and the American People

"Harriman vs. Hill is a fascinating read. It treats an important episode in business and financial history, fleshes it out in more detail than any previous author has done, and covers the ground in an engaging style. Haeg's approach is original and clever in the best sense of the word." -Maury Klein, author of Union Pacific
