Road Through Time: The Story of Hu­man­ity on the Move

The New York Review of Books - - The Classifieds - By Mary Soder­strom

“A lu­cidly writ­ten over­view of this par­tic­u­lar march through the lens of time: the dis­cov­ery of horses as trans­port, the in­ven­tion of the wheel, the estab­lish­ment of early trade routes, and the ex­pan­sion of em­pires through war… Soder­strom trans­ports us from the ro­mance to the bru­tal­ity of the road and leaves us won­der­ing if there’s room (or time) for still more marches across this aching planet.”

Ka­mal Al- So­layee, Quill & Quire

“Driv­ing nar­ra­tive and in­sight­ful re­flec­tion.” Ken McGoogan, author of Dead Reck­on­ing and Ker­ouac’s Ghost
