Reviews

Getting Around explores how students of local transportation history might learn about this vital aspect of their community's past. The scope covers all major types of public transportation, including waterways, canals, railroads, electric interurbans, roads and aviation. This work also provides readers with a sense of the importance and interrelationship between transport forms in both a national and local context. Many period photographs are included.

"Grant provides good general information on the history of roads and suggestions about how to research them, especially about what resources are available…The history of transportation is a wide open field and Getting Around is a good foundation from which to start one's own journey into the subject."--Jon Axline, The Public Historian, Spring 2004

"As a long-time scholar of transportation history, Grant's wide knowledge of available resources makes him the ideal author for this book…This book should enjoy a wide audience." -- J. Lawrence Lee, National Park Service, CRM: The Journal of Heritage Stewardship, Volume 2 Number 1 Winter 2005

"Roger Grant does an encyclopedic service to historians of transportation…Thematically oriented and roughly chronological, the text introduces readers to the intricacies and challenges of researching America's many transportation networks." -- Laura Milsk, Ph.D., AASLH History News, Summer 2005
