A fascinating story about how Robert Louis Stevenson made the long and often dangerous railway journey west in 1879. But it's much more than that -- it tells of an important part of American history and manages to be both informative and interesting. Reads like a novel. Although supposedly for young readers, this is perfectly suitable for adults as well! Lots of great photos, too.
