I loved this book!

I loved this book. I bought a bunch of the "classics" and this is one I feel I got more than my money's worth. I thought the story was quite entertaining, and certainly reflective of the views of the time. I loved the narration too! All the different voices are hard for a single narrator, but this one was up to the task. I could tell who was talking, and it made sense along the way.

I really enjoyed the references to traveling across the US via train. I have been to the train depot in Ogden, I really thought the book was well researched (enough of the things I could relate to, anyway). I would recommend this book, and I would give the audio version as a gift.
