Description - All Gone to Look for America by Peter Millar

At the age of 52 and with a shoestring budget, Peter Millar set about rediscovering the United States by following the last traces of the technological wonder that created the country in the first place - the railroad. On a rail network now ravaged and reduced, he managed to cross the continent in slow motion, talking to people and taking in their stories and concerns while watching the vast landscape unfold. Wry, witty, intelligent and always observant, his account will appeal to modern Britons keen to get beneath the skin of this influential nation.
