Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Great American Rail Journeys takes you on location to eight of North America's most scenic and historically rich landscapes. Each of the rail adventures profiled in this volume - a counterpart to the highly praised public television programs - celebrates the beauty, history, and romance of railway travel. From your first-class seat on this virtual railway coach, you'll view coastlines and canyons, majestic mountains and rushing rivers, Native villages and world-class cities. Along the way you'll meet dozens of delightful characters - conductors, tour guides, passengers, and others who share their love of the landscape and their passion for riding the rails. (8 1/2 x 11, 208 pages, color photos, hard cover)

Synopsis:

The executive producer of the PBS TV programs by the same name now brings the joys of North American rail journeys to readers in a large-format color tome. Enriched with historical detail, each of the eight chapters celebrates one rail journey. 150 color photos. 8 maps.
