East from 'Frisco - on the trail of America's soul By Chris Harris
Paperback: $17.86
Ships in 3-5 business days.
This work is not ‘just another travelog’ – it is a light-hearted blend of observation, anecdote, humour and history. The book was inspired by a USA coast-to-coast expedition from... More > San Francisco to Washington DC to raise funds for charity (Motor Neurone Disease), undertaken for much of the way in a 30-year-old open top ‘classic’ car along the historic Route 66. Little escapes critique – from cow-chip throwing to IndyCar racing; from poker running to the deeply ingrained religiosity of the American people. The story ranges from the sparkling waters of San Francisco Bay, via Amarillo in the Texas panhandle, to shipwreck in the pounding Atlantic surf off Cape Hatteras. The quirks and idiosyncrasies of people and places, and the tragedies and triumphs of American history, are all sympathetically portrayed through the pen of a visitor from Europe. The style is the author’s own – although he likes to think it is inspired by the best of Bryson, RL Stevenson and JK Jerome. Enjoy!< Less
