Rarely has this reviewer, in her more than fifty years of doing so, seen a dedication that summarizes a book as perfectly as this one.

"The Train of States is a personal journey that combines my love for my adopted country with my admiration for antique circus wagons. There are hundreds of facts, symbols, moments from history, tidbits, and details presented on these pages-many of them open to interpretation; several of them the topic of ongoing debate. I hope my book will lead you on your own journeys of discovery."
