Route Book

One of my prized possessions is a Route Book for the Great Wallace Show in 1899. It belonged to my great-great uncle, the elephant trainer who inspired The Circus in Winter. Typically a route book is a list of cities visited. Dates played. Miles traveled. Number of railroads used.

But I measure my time on the road in terms of people I meet.
