This powerful collection of photographs celebrates American trains, railroad stations, and landscapes. Presented in a beautifully designed horizontal format book, these photographs offer a truly original depiction of America's romance with its frontier and one photographer's passion with trains.
Ever since he was a young boy Andrew Cross has been crazy about trains, travelling on them and spending hours watching them speed by. Some Trains in America chronicles his nearly 4,000-mile rail adventure across the United States.
In a unique oblong format Cross's panoramic photographs capture trains bisecting endless prairies, snaking through small towns, and silhouetted against the mountains. Organized geographically in seven sections this series of color images evokes the mythology of America, and illustrates the part trains have played in opening up the West. It is a powerful reminder that America's adventurous spirit endures to this day.
