About this title


Excerpts from student journals and photographs mark a Hofstra University professor's account of his "travelling classroom," in which seventeen students took a six-week bus tour across America, reading, meeting cultural heroes, and experiencing the country. 25,000 first printing.

From the Publisher:

Seeking a better way to teach history to undergraduates, Professor Douglas Brinkley acquired a sleeper bus and took his classroom on the road. From the six-week journey across America that he and seventeen students undertook visiting historical sites such as Monticello and meeting with William Burroughs and other cultural heroes, Brinkley has crafted a lively, engaging travelogue that reaches toward a new understanding of what it means to be an American.

"A veritable love song to America."--Stephen Ambrose
