    One thought on “Zephyr: Tracking a Dream Across America”

    1. I love trains! I have taken almost every Amtrak train in the country and many in Europe. Kisor writes about taking the California Zephyr and his experiences as a deaf person. If you ever get a chance to take this train, do it. It travels over two mountain ranges and through some of the most magnificent scenery in the world. There is nothing better than listening to a book and watching gorgeous scenery go by.In fact, as I write this, I am traveling east on the California Zephyr through one of the [...]

    2. Train lore, history and travelogue are interesting. Comments on geography are good. This would be a better book if the editor would have cut the imagined murder mystery.

    3. This book is a piece of living history like the Zephyr itself. This particular e-book edition has been updated with prologues and epilogues for 2015 which nicely bring a 1994 book into the present. I also like the newer photographs and that he dated all so you had an idea from which trip they came. My only issue reading this on the Kindle is that I know the photos must have otherwise been so much better.The author is an established writer and the book is very well written. In some chapters, his [...]

    4. This past summer my son Miles, who is 8, and I rode the California Zephyr from Emeryville to Denver. We had talked about doing it for years. We had a great time just the two of us. It was an experience I'm sure we will remember fondly all our lives. Upon our return I read this book. I really enjoyed it although having taken the train surely made it a better read. When I finished reading it I looked up the author, Henry Kisor, and sent him an email and included a photo of me and my son in the din [...]

    5. A great book for railfans that want a behind the scenes experience of the operations of an Amtrak long distance train. Lots of fun and lots covered. Kisor even reveals all the quirky and interesting people you encounter on the train. He even devotes a good ten pages to a discussion with a passenger on how a murder could be committed on the train (like in the books) and in turn you learn about other parts of the train and places the California Zephyr goes. Sprinkled throughout the book you learn [...]

    6. What a disappointment. I was looking forward to reading a train travel memoir that took place on a train that I might ride some day. The writing was prozaic at best, mostly pretty boring. The author had the nerve to thumb his nose at my favorite travel writer; Paul Theroux. I did glean some facts from this book, but there was no joy in reading it.

    7. Heard this book on Chapter a Day on Oregon Public Radio years ago and I still think of this book from time to time. Good for anyone who loves trains, and also those who are interested in deaf culture (the author is deaf.)

    8. Another book from my grandpa. He loved to travel and loved trains. I would love to travel the world on trains someday just for him.

    9. Probably the only flaw to this book was the murder mystery part. Luckily, the writer formats in such a way that they are easy to skip.
