Product Description

Ride THE CONCORD COACH and discover the significance of stagecoaches in the 19th century for those who traveled in them and those who stayed at home and depended on the coaches for contact with the outside world. In this delightful chapter of his interesting 1874 book THE WORLD ON WHEELS, Benjamin F. Taylor (prominent Chicago author and newspaperman of the mid-19th century) manages in little more than a thousand words to bring back to life a vanished part of American life. When we think of stagecoaches, we think of overland stages trundling across barely visible tracks into the west. The subject of Taylor's amusing vignette, however, is the coach making the kind of regular back-and-forth run on which Easterners relied to get from one town or city to another. We may gasp at the length of time required to get from place to place. To those of almost two centuries ago, the pace seemed rapid. This charming recollection brings the scene into focus for those who enjoy the commercial and human aspects of American history. Included is an attractively illustrated title page, as well as an illustration of a Concord coach executed for the original edition of THE WORLD ON WHEELS. You'll find as well brief notes on the nature of the coach, author Benjamin F. Taylor, the book itself, and the publisher S.C. Griggs of Chicago.
