When I first started researching Fred Harvey over five years ago, I was amazed at how little information was available online besides reference photos of buildings, and promised that when/if the book ever got finished, I’d set up a blog site to remedy that. So my book Appetite for America, comes out March 23 and today, one week before, we open One Nation Under Fred, a place for Freddists, Harvey Girl enthusiasts, Santa Fe trainiacs and others fascinated by all the worlds touched by Fred Harvey can meet, talk, share stories and pictures, and have a cup of coffee (I’ll post the original FH recipe.)

If you want to read an excerpt from the book, there is one posted here. If you want to come hear me speak about the book during our train tour, there’s a schedule here. If you want to buy a book, you can do it here. And if you just want to write and discuss your Fredilections and Harveynalias, you now have a place to do so.

May Fred be with you,

  1. Stephen – congratulations on launching this blog on such a fascinating subject. I look forward to reading all about your epic rail trip. If there’s any way to get to one of your stops, I’ll try to make it happen. Or, you could just plan a secondary Harvey/Santa Fe tour here in Texas.

    Thanks for the link! I’ve just added your blog to my Links page.
