Summary
Swedish-born engineer and inventor Captain John Ericsson was ahead of his time. His sleek fire engine could shoot gallons of water as high as ninety feet. His steam locomotive could fly down the tracks at the unheard of speed of thirty miles per hour. But was such a quantity of water necessary? Was such speed advisable?

However, wonderful opportunities awaited Captain Ericsson on the other side of the Atlantic, where people had a taste for dreamers
