Three Hundred Years With The Pennsylvania Traveler
300 Yrs Pennsylvania Traveler
Three Hundred Years With The Pennsylvania Traveler Pennsylvania’s unusual topography and location at the hub of the original 13 colonies make the state’s transportation history unique. This comprehensive, 156-page book with four-color-cover employs delightful, often humorous, perceptions of the problems which beset Pennsylvania pioneers. It also details an amazing assortment of vehicles and unusual means of crossing streams and mountains, perhaps unequaled in any other state. Numerous photos and drawings, some by the author’s artist son Will Shank, illustrate the state’s engineering “firsts,” including the first wooden bridge, tunnel, wire cable, coal railroad and hard-surface intercity highway.
