About this title


From his European home, prize-winning travel writer Matthew Stevenson sets out across the United States by train, rental car, plane, and bike, to reconnect with such celebrated places at the South Dakota Badlands, post-Katrina New Orleans, Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, Civil War Virginia, and gentrified New York City. Along the way he writes about former President Bill Clinton, Senator George McGovern, private rail cars, Amish Lancaster, and Mount Rushmore. The book is delightful tapestry of American places and history.


“Whistle-Stopping America has the allure of Matthew Stevenson's masterful writing and his beguiling insights into travel, the next stop, and family. He has an unfailing eye for detail, analysis, and the joys around us, all sprinkled with wit and humor.  His zest for life will trap you.”

        —Jack Owens, author, Don’t Shoot, We’re Republicans

 “Matthew Stevenson's wit and perception sparkle like his writing.”

        —Simon Hoggart, columnist, The Guardian

 “A traveler in time as well as space, Matthew Stevenson finds in the landscape of the present the rich inheritance of the past.”

         —Lewis Lapham, editor and founder, Lapham’s Quarterly
