Chicago Sun-Times book editor Kisor offers an absorbing look at life aboard the California Zephyr as it traveled across America's most storied transcontinental rail route. 

Intimately familiar with the California Zephyr, Kisor uses a run from Chicago to Emeryville in the San Francisco Bay Area to point out the stunning beauty along the route and highlight its rich history. He also explains well the special appeal of long-distance train travel--the sense of community that develops on the train, the local newspapers available from big and small towns along the way, and the relaxing atmosphere of the coach car. Particularly strong are the stories about the crew that makes these long runs possible. Stories and interviews with the engineer, stewards, chef, conductor, and other Amtrakers make this a superb piece on railroad travel in the United States.
