A stunning collection of photographs taken by Robert Frank during his travels across the United States in 1955 and 1956. These images offer a powerful and poignant snapshot of America during this time, depicting both hope and despair, beauty and tension. Frank's understanding of Americans' love for cars is particularly evident throughout the book. This volume features more than 80 photographs, each with its own page and limited caption information at the back, providing an intimate look at the images. Jack Kerouac's original introduction adds a complementary narrative dimension to Frank's stunning imagery.
