Slow Road to San Francisco: Across the USA from Ocean to Ocean (Paperback)
Ships in 2-10 Days
From Ocean City, Maryland to San Francisco, Reynolds traverses the US and observes—with remarkable honesty and insight, not to mention a humorous and sometimes skeptical eye—Trump's America, and the Americans' way of life. As he moseys from east to west, driving slowly, and stopping frequently, he meets a huge variety of Americans—white, black, Hispanic, Asian, native American; Christian, Muslim, atheist, Mormon, Mennonite; rich, middling, poor. They talk about everything from slavery, Indian reservations, fracking, and forest fires to baseball, beer, the blues, Butch Cassidy, and Marilyn Monroe. Everyone has something to say about Donald Trump, from those who "love him" to those who "hate him." Reynolds follows the direction of history, the direction taken by explorers and pioneer settlers. As he travels he conjures a vivid picture of the US then and now; its landscape and its people in all their diversity.
