Spanning 500 years this informational picture book traces the history of the Boston Post Road which stretched from Boston to New York City. It begins with the snap of a twig as Native Americans used the path in their culture and continues its way through milestones and turnpikes ending with evolution of the road eventually to a four lane highway.
