which is what I did and though I could not listen to it all the way without breaks for fiction or music I finished it. Interestingly, I got an email from a very conservative family member with a bunch of paranoid non-facts about this very highway and felt much too smug pointing out the reality of the politics behind the NAFTA elements. Mr Dellinger's descriptions of the people and communities are treats.

Matt Delinger relates the story of Interstate 69 from concept through related controversies to the present status. Along the way he brings the listener up to speed on what has taken place in each region involved in the controversy. This is not only a story of the development of a highway, but a window into democracy in action. I'll never think of " bridges to no where" in quite the same way.
The narrative is great and the reading of Robert Fass just couldn't be better. Anyone interested in American politics, highway systems, economic development, and how our money is spent will benefit from this helpful book. If you just want a great story ... listen to this one.
