I have been telling you about some of the wonderful books we carry in the Gift Shop. I want to alert you to brand new book that will be available in October. I just thought I’d give you a heads-up on it.
It is Going the Greyhound Way: The Romance of the Road by Robert Gabrick, published by Iconografx.
It is hard to imagine an America without the Greyhound Bus. When personal transportation was in its infancy and car ownership limited, Greyhound provided fast, reliable, safe, and economical local and regional transportation for the masses. The company quickly grew in size and scope, achieving the goal of its founders-to develop a nationwide system of transportation.
Profusely illustrated with period advertisements, travel brochures, post cards, and archival photographs of depots and buses, this history of the Greyhound Bus Lines offers a unique journey through America’s physical and cultural landscape.
As soon as it is available, we will be selling it in the gift shop–so plan ahead and look for it when you come to the Annual Meeting. It will be retailing for $34.95. As soon as they are in stock, I will blog about it so that those of you who might want to order it over the internet will have all the details.
