Coast to Coast

by Jan Morris - £9.99  Faber and Faber (2010)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780571241774 | ISBN 10: 0571241778

Fresh from her successful scoop reporting the first ascent of Everest in 1953, Jan Morris spent a year journeying across the United States, by car, train, ship and aeroplane. In her words a 'period piece', Coast to Coast describes an American identity markedly different from today.
 
In her brilliant prose, Morris records with exuberence and curiosity a time of innocence in the US - when television was in its infancy, the Big Mac had not been invented and the popular song of the day was 'Chattanooga Choo-Choo'.
