- Special Autographed Edition -
Join author Ben "Gitty" Baker on an epic 8,400-mile adventure around America, visiting thirty states over two weeks via eight different Amtrak® trains. This delightful railfan excursion will take you from the Berkshires of Massachusetts to the steel mills of northern Indiana; from the vast northern plains and prairies to the cliffs of the High Cascades; from the mesquite-studded deserts of the American southwest to the kudzu-draped forests of the deep South; from the shores of the Pacific Northwest to the industrialized Atlantic seaboard, and finally back to Boston and home to New Hampshire. Travelogue journal entries, research, commentary and over three hundred photos chronicle the author’s trip, carrying you along on a once-in-a-lifetime journey. Written to be enjoyed by travel enthusiasts and history buffs as well as railfans, this book cannot help but give a greater appreciation for the vast scenic beauty, and deep historical legacy, of the United States and its railroad traditions. All aboard!
