Slow road to San Francisco

by David Reynolds | 20 August 2020
PAPERBACK
Categories: The Americas Travel
From Ocean City, Maryland to San Francisco, Reynolds traverses the back roads and small towns of the continent, taking the pulse of Trump's America as he goes. With remarkable honesty and insight, not to mention a humorous and sometimes sceptical eye, he observes the US today. As he moseys from east to west, driving slowly, stopping frequently he meets Trump's countrymen and women - white, black, Hispanic, Asian, native American; Christian, Muslim, atheist, Mormon, Mennonite; rich, middling, poor. They talk about everything from slavery, Indian reservations, fracking and forest fires to baseball, beer, the blues, Butch Cassidy, and Marilyn Monroe. Everyone has something to say about Donald Trump, from those who 'love him' to those who 'hate him.' Reynolds follows the direction of history, the direction taken by explorers and pioneer settlers. As he travels he conjures a vivid picture of the US then and now; its landscape and its people in all their diversity.
