Twenty West

SUNY Press author Mac Nelson was recently interviewed for a story in the Daily Chronicle. Nelson wrote Twenty West: The Great Road Across America, which follows the route, history, and geography of US 20, America’s longest road.

The book has garnered some fantastic reviews elsewhere as well:

"Nelson manages to pull off the not-so-easy feat of being quirky, erudite and entertaining.” — Chicago Tribune

“Armchair travelers and devotees of American history are in for a treat.” — Ann La Farge, The Independent

“A wonderful read for armchair travelers, and the next best thing to touring the length of US Route 20 in person.” — Midwest Book Review

“From New York state to Yellowstone National Park, Nelson visits the ridiculous and the sublime … Twenty West shows plenty and according to Nelson, ‘There is room for all of us.’” — ForeWord Magazine
