about this item

“Michael Portillo can be seen on screens on his second railway journey across the United States. His first took in historic East Coast sites, but these new travels are broader in scope, from the cities of the Atlantic coast to vibrant San Francisco, via Chicago, Colorado, New Mexico, and the Deep South. His route is informed by the 19th-century Appletons’ guidebooks, but if you’d like something a little more up-to-date, pick up Great American Railroad Journeys and follow in Portillo’s train tracks.” —Radio Times

This official, lavishly illustrated BBC-produced tie-in to the Great American Railway Journeys series—soon to air on PBS—captures Michael Portillo's epic journey across the United States.

Michael Portillo embarks by train on an epic journey from New York and Boston to the deep south of Atlanta and New Orleans, and then on to Chicago, Colorado, New Mexico, and ultimately San Francisco. Truly a colorful and exciting collection of essays and vignettes that celebrate the rich history and expansion of nineteenth-century North America, Great American Railway Journeys is a must-have purchase for any armchair traveler and fans of nineteenth-century US history.
