It seems difficult even to imagine the modern West without reference to its planes, trains, and automobiles. Freeways define modern Los Angeles, as Route 66 still recalls the freedom of the open road. Seattle, long home to Boeing, gave birth to jetliners such as the 707. And once trains with glamorous names like The Sunset Limited and The Great Northern Flyer carried passengers in posh luxury through the grand vistas of the West. "Railways, highways, and skyways link landscapes both ordinary and sublime for tourists in search of scenic splendor," observes Carlos Arnaldo Schwantes. But those same corridors often leaven despair with opportunity for those who dream that the mobility brought by car, train, and plane will help them find better jobs or escape from their pasts. Going Places looks at three major ways in which transportation has shaped the great Western landscape. There are the transformations brought about by a railroad right-of-way, highway corridors, waterways, and airports, and the larger impacts of transportation on the landscape, such as the development that followed the iron rails westward. Finally, Schwantes considers how travelers experience the passing landscape as framed by the windows of automobiles, passenger trains, and jetliners, and what that might mean. He examines the interconnections between railroad, highway, aviation, and waterways, and between society and modes of transportation. This masterful narrative travels the length and breadth of a vast space, with marvelous anecdotes and telling details that bring the story to life. More than 100 carefully selected photographs complement the text.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my
own blog and was curious what all is needed to get
setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% certain. Any suggestions or
advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it

Amazing blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would
really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your design. Kudos

If you're going to another city and find that there's a good show in this
city, you can't look at different companies for that box office, stand it a line
and buy the tickets. Cherry blossom tattoos represent something
more important in several cultures. The plastic's
name can often be abbreviated to CR-39, standing for Columbia Resin, and it is not even half the body weight of glass, which supplanted quartz within the early twentieth century.
