My original deadline for publishing at the end of 2021 has come and gone. Researching, learning, and writing has evolved so much more than I thought was possible. The amount of details and history about these machines is staggering. Every time that I think an information source is exhausted, someone will email me or I will read a social media comment and I come across more history. The book will be completed in early to mid 2022. A critical historical resource for the Sno-Train chapter will not be available until May. Until then, I am finishing up the Overland Mark 2 chapter and editing the remaining chapters.

Editing the chapters has been the most laborious. I am publishing on Amazon, but that does not mean the editing scrutiny is any less robust. I have one editor for content and another applying the Chicago Manual of Style.
