Book excerpt: "With his lively pen and lyric camera, Mr. Hokanson takes us on a journey of discovery. The open road is, in part, a defining characteristic of this country, and the Lincoln Highway is one of the historic traces ... like the Oregon Trail, the Camino Real, or the National Road. Not just for tourists, the Lincoln Highway accelerated the processes of social mobility, changed our geography, and led inexorably to a new America. This is an important story, well researched and beautifully, perceptively told." -- William L. Withuhn, Curator of Transportation, Smithsonian Institution Copyright © Libri GmbH.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Lincoln Highway across Indiana explores Indiana's unique role in Lincoln Highway history and celebrates Indiana's place in early automotive and road-building history. Once known as the "Main Street of America," the Lincoln Highway route was established across northern Indiana in 1913, linking larger cities--Fort Wayne, Elkhart, Goshen, South Bend, LaPorte, and Valparaiso--to smaller communities. Most Lincoln Highway towns renamed their main streets Lincolnway in recognition of the nation's first coast-to-coast auto road. When the Lincoln Highway Association shortened the route in 1926, the route linked Fort Wayne to Columbia City, Warsaw, and Plymouth, giving the state two Lincoln Highway routes. From Fort Wayne to the famous Ideal Section, between Dyer and Schererville, Indiana's Lincolnway towns remain proudly connected to Lincoln Highway history. Through vintage photographs, postcards, advertisements, and other historical records, this armchair tour of the highway visits sites favored by early tourists, documents the people and places that made the highway a vital corridor, and celebrates Hoosier Carl Fisher's leadership in the formation of the Lincoln Highway Association, as well as the people who work to preserve its legacy today.

Download or read book The Lincoln Highway Across Illinois written by David A. Belden and published by Arcadia Publishing. This book was released on 2013-12-09 with total page 128 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From southern Cook County to the Mississippi River, the Lincoln Highway meanders through many of Chicago’s suburbs before heading west through Illinois’s fertile farmland. America’s first transcontinental highway once stretched nearly 3,400 miles from New York City to San Francisco. The story of the highway’s role in shaping the contemporary American highway system is one that examines the interaction of technology and human spirit. Conceived by entrepreneur Carl G. Fischer in 1912 and endorsed by businessman Henry B. Joy, the idea of creating an automobile-friendly roadway spanning America would soon change the nature of travel in the 20th century. Lincoln Highway in Illinois defines and describes the role of the highway as it zigzags its way across the “Land of Lincoln” and highlights the cities, towns, and rural communities along its route.

Book excerpt: FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE MULTI-MILLION COPY BESTSELLER A GENTLEMAN IN MOSCOW 'An absolute beauty of a book. Every character is a gem, the many locations spring to vivid life, the book is an intricate and moving exploration of journeys and the infinite unexpected turns they can take - and somehow Towles makes it all seem effortless. As soon as I finished it, I wanted to read it again' TANA FRENCH 'The best novel I've read in years. Epic and original, mesmeric and life-affirming, in THE LINCOLN HIGHWAY Amor Towles takes his unmatched gift for storytelling and puts it on the road. Every beautiful paragraph takes the reader a mile further into a world where our choices matter, where life surprises us, and where people are worth the trouble. This is one of those rare and special books that drive us home to ourselves' CHRIS CLEAVE 'With exquisitely drawn characters, beautiful writing and a real sense of moral integrity, The Lincoln Highway already feels like an American coming of age classic to sit alongside The Catcher In The Rye and To Kill A Mockingbird' Red _____________________ In June, 1954, eighteen-year-old Emmett Watson is driven home to Nebraska by the warden of the juvenile work farm where he has just served fifteen months for involuntary manslaughter. With his mother long gone, his father recently deceased, and the family farm foreclosed upon by the bank, Emmett plans to pick up his eight-year-old brother Billy and head to California to start a new life. But when the warden drives away, Emmett discovers that two friends from the work farm have stowed away in the trunk of the warden's car. They have a very different plan for Emmett's future, one that will take the four of them on a fateful journey in the opposite direction - to New York City. Bursting with life, charm, richly imagined settings and unforgettable characters, The Lincoln Highway is an extraordinary journey through 1950s America from the pen of a master storyteller. _____________________ '[A] wise and wildly entertaining novel . . . Towles has snipped off a minuscule strand of existence - 10 wayward days - and when we look through his lens we see that this brief interstice teems with stories, grand as legends' New York Times 'Finely observed and beautifully written. Amor Towles is that rare combination of writer and storyteller' JEFFREY ARCHER

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A high-quality summary of Amor Towles´s book The Lincoln Highway, including chapter details and analysis of the main themes of the original book. About the original book: June 1954. Emmett Watson, then eighteen, is driven home to Nebraska by the warden of the juvenile work farm where he had just completed a fifteen-month sentence for involuntary homicide. Emmett's plan is to pick up his eight-year-old brother, Billy, and fly to California, where they can start their lives over, with his mother long gone, his father lately deceased, and the family farm foreclosed upon by the bank. However, after the warden drives away, Emmett discovers that two of his work farm pals have secreted themselves in the warden's car trunk. They've devised a whole different plan for Emmett's future, one that would lead them all on a perilous voyage in the opposite direction—to New York City. Towles' third novel, which spans only 10 days and is recounted from several points of view, will delight admirers of his multi-layered literary style while also introducing them to a variety of new and brilliantly imagined locales, characters, and topics.
