The New Yorker on-line site has an interview with John McPhee, one of America's most versatile writers. He has written books about oranges, the merchant marines, the geology of the North America, physics, 'controlling' the Mississippi River, young Bill Bradley, the Pine Barrens of New Jersey, and countless other subjects. An upcoming New Yorker has another installment of his series on transportation. This time, he rides on a coal train.
If you haven't read any McPhee, be sure to put him on your "to read list."
