Just Fine the Way They Are - From Dirt Roads to Rail Roads to Interstates

Just Fine the Way They Are - From Dirt Roads to Rail Roads to Interstates

Are things really fine just the way they are? Some people think so, others embrace change. More than just a non-fiction book about the development of the National Road into the interstate road system, this is also a thought provoking story about attitudes towards change. In the 1800s people questioned why tax money should be spent on something like a road for “citified dandies” and their contraptions. Now that we have interstate roads, what about the pollution and the oil shortage? Is there a better solution on the horizon or are things fine the way they are? Includes timeline.   32 pages  Ages  6 and up
