Today, we're married to our cars. But life behind the wheel of an automobile didn't come naturally to Americans. Crooked politicians, unscrupulous businessmen, burning streetcars, and convoluted tax shenanigans are a few of the players in this gripping tale of corruption, greed, and endless miles of asphalt. Comics, text, and historic photographs tell the story of the rise of the U.S. highway system and the corresponding demise of rail and public transportation. Also shown is the story of how we can ditch the car and rebuild the functional transportation system that has been shown to bring wealth, happiness, and freedom.
Follow Bill and his friends as they pedal over hill and dale on a bike ride across the United States.
