Traces the evolution of travel by humans in North America from the days of Indian trails through the development of sophisticated passenger trains, including canoes, pole-boats, pack-trains, stage-coaches, canals, steamboats, wilderness roads, the period when the Cherokees and other Native Americans controlled travel in Georgia (and their overthrow), the Mormon Trail, and the final joining of the Nation at Promontory Point. The author also devotes a serious portion of the book to discussion of the social evolution of travel as exemplified by inns and taverns. 1529 pages with index.
