From Publishers WeeklyPublic radio reporter Algeo (Last Team Standing) brings the 1950s into focus with a fascinating reconstruction of Harry and Bess Truman's postpresidential 2,­500-­mile road trip. I like to take trips—any kind of trip, Truman wrote. They are about the only recreation I have besides reading. Between 2006 and 2008, Algeo retraced their journey with stopovers at some of the same diners and hotels the couple visited. When Truman left the White House in 1953, he returned to Independence, Mo., rejecting lucrative offers he felt would commercialize the presidency. His only income was a small army pension. Acquiring a 1953 Chrysler, the Trumans set out with no fanfare and a curious notion of traveling incognito. However, reporters and newsreel cameras soon turned their vehicular vacation into an ongoing media event. The book benefits from extensive research through oral history interviews and papers at the Harry S. Truman Library, and Algeo's own interviews with . . .

Alexander Cockburn was without question one of the most influential journalists of his generation, whose writing stems from the best tradition of Mark Twain, H.­L. Menchken and Tom Paine. Colossal Wreck, his final work, finished shortly before his death in July 2012, exemplifies the prodigious literary brio that made Cockburn's name.­Whether ruthlessly exposing Beltway hypocrisy, pricking the pomposity of those in power, or tirelessly defending the rights of the oppressed, Cockburn never pulled his punches and always landed a blow where it mattered. In this panoramic work, covering nearly two decades of American culture and politics, he explores subjects as varied as the sex life of Bill Clinton and the best way to cook wild turkey. He stands up for the rights of prisoners on death row and exposes the chicanery of the media and the duplicity of the political elite.

By 1911 it was apparent the automobile was not going to be a passing fad. Henry Ford had sold his first Model T from an assembly line in 1908 and the price of the car targeted at the middle class was dropping every year. Enthusiastic motorists formed automobile clubs which promoted the building of roads and opportunistic promoters lobbied to bring those roads into their towns.

Many of these efforts took their cues from the Good Roads Movement that was founded in May 0f 1880 to improve the nations roadways for bicycles. In 1912 the Good Roads Movement inspired the Lincoln Highway Association determined to build a navigable road across the continental United States. Carl Fisher, who manufactured headlights and was a co-­funder of the Indianapolis Speedway, was the leading cheerleader for the transcontinental road that eventually covered 3,­389 miles and passed through more than 700 cities when it opened in 1913.

In the wake of the Lincoln Highway’s success other multi-­state auto . . .

ABOUT THE BOOK

The former President of the United States, nattily dressed in suit and tie in defiance of the early summer Missouri heat, driving through towns whose telephone systems are connected through central switchboards, sheepishly obeying his wife’s directive not to exceed fifty-­five miles per hour and loving every minute of it, is what the reader finds in Harry Truman’s Excellent Adventure. And that’s just what’s on the surface.

Also within its covers one will find a former President of the United States moving about at will, free from the wall of Secret Service protection separating him from his fellow citizens. They will discover a man beset by financial challenges, planning a badly needed vacation by poring over maps at his kitchen table, carefully setting up an itinerary. With Harry Truman at the wheel the reader drives across a midwest devoid of interstate highways, fast food restaurants, chain motels and often even speed limits.

Hit the road and look up, America!

There is no better way to learn about America than to explore its state capitals and there is no better time to visit our capital cities than now. After two decades of flush pockets that saw private investment rehabbing decaying buildings and public money spent to preserve and spruce up
heritage structures, many towns have never looked finer. And likely won’t look this good for the foreseeable future with now cash-­strapped cities unable to dole out the generous maintenance budgets of recent years. In Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, for instance, $114 million was found to spruce
up the state capitol that Teddy Roosevelt called “the handsomest building I ever saw.­” But already there is mounting despair in Keystone State preservation circles about how to pay for restoring the capitol statuary that weren’t included in the project.

There is no better way to see America’s capitals than on foot. While printed, self-­guided walking tours of destinations like . . .

When your life plan explodes, you ask yourself the big questions: What do I really need in life? How can I make my life a work of art? Should I buy a house? Have kids? What is a life? Following in Kerouac and Steinbeck's tire tracks, a 32-­year-­old, post-­breakup Brendan Leonard hits the road in search of healing and a new, post-­economic-­downturn American Dream. Sleeping in the back of a beat-­up station wagon, he seeks answers—and hopefully, the occasional shower—in the postcard-­worthy places of the American West. Part ballad to the romance of the road and part heart-­searching treatise on the American Dream, The New American Road Trip Mixtape is Leonard's raw, often hilarious, barstool storytelling at its best.

After spending time as a professor in upstate New York, Robert Ward decided to give journalism a try. What followed were two decades of assignments for New Times, GQ, SPORT, Rolling Stone, and other publications, covering the biggest stars of the sporting, music, art, and film worlds. This collection includes Ward's celebrated story on Reggie Jackson that nearly tore the New York Yankees apart (and was later brought to life in an ESPN miniseries "The Bronx Is Burning"); a profile of the "outlaw" country music movement of Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Jerry Jeff Walker, and David Allan Coe; and an insightful feature on Hustler publisher Larry Flynt as a young pornographer that almost cost Ward his life. Also included are essays about the former premier of Vietnam Nguyen Cao Ky trying to adjust to life in California; an aging Lee Marvin dealing with the survivor's guilt from his time in World War II; and profiles of LeRoy Neiman, Robert Mitchum, and a variety of fringe characters . . .

`In my dreams, I was always in some vast landscape on a long, straight road. Driving. Always driving.? Gwenda had always loved the open road, but her home town of Newcastle didn?­t really offer the sort of adventure she longed for. So, in 1957, with friend and fellow nurse Pat in tow, she left the dismal British winter behind, and embarked on an amazing American adventure. After a year nursing in Cleveland, Gwenda, Pat and three new friends set off on a road trip around North America, driving in a rickety 1949 Ford. What follows is the charming true story of five remarkable young women. Over the course of eighteen months, the girls go to a 4th July rodeo, visit San Francisco and Las Vegas, learn to surf in Hawaii, spot movie stars in Hollywood and celebrate Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Wherever they go, the travelling nurses cause a sensation. This is a delightfully nostalgic memoir of friendship and the romance of the open road.
