FROM THE PUBLISHER
In the summer of 2000, David Haward Bain and his family headed west in search of America's past. Following abandoned railroad tracks and the traces of old wagon trails, they discovered a uniquely American spirit of adventure that connects our past to our present. A superb writer and expert historian, Bain lingers in the hallowed places that line the old emigrant routes of the railroad and encounters a fascinating cast of characters, both historic and contemporary. Written with an engaging warmth and a deep grasp of history all his own, Bain has fashioned a quintessentially American journey.
