Overview

In Wyoming, we see grandmother and housewife, Louisa Swain, who went shopping in downtown Laramie and made history as the first woman in history ever to legally vote in an official election.

Then, it is off along Route 20 to Yellowstone Park and its volcanic wonders. The road passes by Rexburg, Idaho, the birthplace of the inventor of television, and then goes into Oregon to Newport, named by a Mainer who had good memories of Newport Rhode Island, where he vacationed as a child.

Through these 3 volumes, Uncle Sam has accompanied us, by hitchhiking, then driving an early car past the Pennsylvania hills, until the road ends at the Pacific Ocean, where he stops to watch Captain Cook's ship, the Endeavour pass by​ on its way north, lit by a brilliant sunset.
