Description

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 her words a 'period piece', Coast to Coast describes an American identity markedly different from today. In her brilliant prose, Morris records with exuberance 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.'

Author Biography

Jan Morris was born in 1926 of a Welsh father and an English mother, and when she is not travelling she lives with her partner Elizabeth Morris in the top left-hand corner of Wales, between the mountains and the sea. Her books include Coronation Everest, Venice, The Pax Britannica Trilogy (Heaven's Command, Pax Britannica, and Farewell the Trumpets), and Conundrum. Hav, her novel, was published in a new and expanded form in 2006.
