In time for the holidays, a celebration of family, home, and tradition by the #1 New York Times bestselling author and superstar media personality
The holidays. It's the time when families gather and reflect on the past year, to remember losses, to toast triumphs, to look forward to new beginnings. In the spirit of the season, beloved author and radio host Michael Savage's Train Tracks reminds us how every member of our family--in fact, each individual we encounter through time--contributes essential gifts to our life story.
In the title chapter, set in the early 1950s, Savage remembers the excitement and mystery of riding the train from New York's old Penn Station to rural Pennsylvania at the start of the holiday break. Drawn from Savage's own journey from poor immigrant's son to media stardom, these deeply personal true tales show us that even in today's homogenizing times, we are all charting a unique destiny as we journey through life.
Train Tracks is an instant holiday classic by an American original--a very special gift to be read and shared as we gather together.
