The Empire Builder

The Empire Builder

by AM

This zine is a beautiful ode to a ride on the Empire Builder, the train that runs between Chicago and Portland, Oregon. It's the story of AM's trip across America, a trip she took for love. It's easy to relate to her story of leaving everything behind to pursue her heart's desire, and her emotions follow the ups and downs of the mountains in between her new life, and the one she left behind. The Empire Builder is the perfect perzine, describing her experiences and the scenes around her in vivid detail. The love didn't last, but the memory endures.
