Previous ed.: San Francisco, Calif.: Travelers Tales, 2002.

Fresh from her successful scoop reporting the first ascent of Everest in 1953, Jan Morris spent a year journeying across the United States, by car, train, ship and aeroplane.

In herwords a "period piece", Coast to Coast describes an American identity markedly different from today.

In her brilliant prose, Morris records with exuberence and curiosity a time of innocence in the US - when television was in its infancy, the Big Mac had not been invented and the popular song of the day was "Chattanooga Choo-Choo".
