Following the recent publication of Jan Morris's final book, here is her very first. Fresh from her success reporting on the first Everest ascent in 1953, she spent a year journeying by car, train, ship, and aircraft across the United States. "I did not know it then, and nor did America, but chance had brought me across the Atlanti at the very apex of American happiness, " writes Morris in her new introduction. Coast to Coast is the newest entry in the Travelers' Tales Classics series.
