Chronicles six weeks on the road with an experimental college history class which crisscrossed the country on a sleeper bus. (July)
"What a marvelous idea--teaching students about America by letting
them experience it on the road....This is one recent book I wish
every American would read."
"This is a marvelous book, a veritable love song to America. Doug Brinkley knows more about American popular culture, how teachers ought to relate to students, the great American novels, the diplomatic history of the Cold War, what are the important historical sites and why every American should visit them, than anyone else I know."
"The ultimate road trip, a rollicking tour of American history seen through the eyes of a remarkable professor and his students."
