The book goes into detail about the runners trip from Joliet, Illinois, to New York City—what happened after they headed for the Big Apple. The historical tour provides a turn-by-turn driving guide to find the route today, describes surviving sites along the route, and offers stories of life in the late 1920s. More than 200 illustrations, including period photographs, postcard images, and maps illustrate the epic tale. Reports from period newspapers add color and a sense of the moment.
