Descripción

"In 1912 Carl Graham Fisher proposed a new idea that changed the way America traveled. He wanted to build a highway across America, a highway linking the Atlantic to the Pacific, a highway that was an expression of our national wanderlust, a highway that would allow the average motorist to experience the United States with an intimacy not possible from the train window.This is the story of his efforts and the unrelenting work of others to create the first transcontinental highway across the United States. With an eye for drama and tremendous enthusiasm, Drake Hokanson documents how the founders went about promoting and building the highway, how the public responded to the idea, and how the first motorists traveling the highway fared." This book has 159 pages and is profusely illustrated. The book is a SIGNED PRESENTATION copy from the author, Drake Hokanson. N° de ref. de la librería 021208

Sinopsis:

Traces the history of the first transcontinental American highway, describes its route from New York City to San Francisco, and shares the experiences of early travelers

From the Back Cover:

In his new introduction to this tenth anniversary edition, Hokanson revisits the Lincoln Highway and finds it changed - much for the better - since the original publication of this book. Most notably, he calls attention to the reinvigorated Lincoln Highway Association and its efforts to preserve what is left of the old road. Hokanson finds more and more tourists traveling the road - not only Americans but foreigners as well - by car, bus, and motorcycle on journeys not to any particular destination but simply to see America.
