LISTEN: An Interview with Waiting on a Train Author James McCommons
Posted By dpacheco On May 28, 2010 @ 10:20 am In Nature & Environment | No Comments
During the tumultuous year of 2008—when gas prices reached $4 a gallon, Amtrak set ridership records, and a commuter train collided with a freight train in California—journalist James McCommons spent a year on America’s trains, talking to the people who ride and work the rails throughout much of the Amtrak system. Organized around these rail journeys, Waiting on a Train is equal parts travel narrative, personal memoir, and investigative journalism.
James McCommons appeared on Up to Date with Steve Kraske from KCUR—Kansas City’s NPR affiliate—on Thursday, May 27 to discuss the stimulus and the future of passenger rail in America.
