Description
 
In the summer of 2000, award-winning author David Bain and his family headed west in search of America’s past. Between the Missouri River and the Golden Gate Bridge, they retraced the entire route of the first transcontinental railroad and stretches of the Oregon and California trails. Following vanished iron rails and wagon wheel ruts, bumping down back roads and main streets, they discovered the deep, restless, uniquely American spirit of adventure that connects our past to our present. Along the way, Bain encounters a fascinating cast of characters, both historic and contemporary -- from Mark Twain and Willa Cather to Henry Fonda and Marlon Brando, including his own grandparents. “Bain has fashioned a quintessentially American journey.” Illustrations.
