Publisher's Summary

This collection is the fruit of Charles Hillinger's nearly 46-year dream job spent traveling the United States as a feature writer and columnist for the Los Angeles Times, which resulted in 6,000 human and general-interest stories. He traveled, came home to write, and hit the road again. In Charles Hillinger's America, you will learn about Thomas Edison's first motion-picture studio, built in New Jersey; about the only surviving wooden whaling ship, in Connecticut; about the place in West Virginia where someone actually built a mountain out of a molehill; about the hauntingly mysterious mural in Utah known as the Great Gallery; about why Minnesota is the looniest state in the lower 48; and about firemen from mainland America who beat a steady path to Ponce, Puerto Rico.
