This travel book aims to reveal the myths embedded in America, and begins its journey in Central Park, but then moves to other worlds: the world of Moby Dick and the Atlantic ports; the home of the grizzlies; and finally to where Custer took his last stand on the plains of Montana.

About the Author:

Gavin Young (1929-2001) was a journalist, writer, and briefly a member of MI6. As a journalist, he was most associated with the Observer, being in the words of Mark Frankland's obituary 'a star foreign correspondent'. When disenchantment with journalism set in he turned to the writing of books. The two most famous ones are Slow Boats to China and its sequel Slow Boats Home . He himself had a particular affection for two later books In Search of Conrad (winner of the Thomas Cook Book Award) and A Wavering Grace. These and Beyond Lion Rock , From Sea to Shining Sea , Return to the Marshes and Worlds Apart are all being reissued in Faber Finds.
