This was something I picked off a library display when nothing was in. It was a collection of essays on various transportation methods, which makes it sound way more boring than it was. He rode along on a semi, a river boat, a canoe, a train, and some other stuff that you sort of know exist but never knew anything about. Interesting, although I wished I had a dictionary. (Why is it I only read books with words I don't know on an airplane where I can't look them up?)
