About the Author:

Geert Mak is a journalist and historian, and the internationally acclaimed author of In Europe, Amsterdam and The Bridge. He is one of the Netherlands' bestselling authors, has twice been awarded Historian of the Year and his books have been translated into more than 20 languages.

Review:

"Where Steinbeck generally avoided the hubbub of big cities, Mak balances descriptions of the rural plains and towns that symbolize the country's early origins with fascinating sections on urban growth and decay... An ambitious and enjoyable take on America's story" Times Literary Supplement "Rambling, thoughtful, often funny... Wonderful" Guardian "[A] smart, deep-rooted state of the nation report from Main Street, USA" The Times "Perfect for armchair travellers" Choice Magazine "The lyrical story of two journeys interwoven with a broad history and witty observations about the changes of place and people over the past 50 years" -- Julia Richardson Daily Mail
