Description

From his European home, prize-winning travel writer Matthew Stevenson sets out across the United States by train, rental car, plane, and bike, to reconnect with such celebrated places at the South Dakota Badlands, post-Katrina New Orleans, Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, Civil War Virginia, and gentrified New York City. Along the way he writes about former President Bill Clinton, Senator George McGovern, private rail cars, Amish Lancaster, and Mount Rushmore. The book is delightful tapestry of American places and history.
