The Boston Post Road, a system of overland mail delivery routes between New York City and Boston, carried not just passengers but the march of American history itself. Jaffe follows its progress through four centuries, from Indian trail to interstate, and touches on the road's role in everything from the Revolutionary War to international espionage to the creation of the first mass-produced bicycles.
Featuring pocket histories of various industries, including railroads, gun-making, textile production, newspapers, automobiles, as well as a colorful cast of characters from PT Barnum to Robert Moses, "The King's Best Highway" is a delightful read for American history buffs everywhere.
