Lincoln Highwayman follows the road westward

James Devitt Jr., who goes by the name Lincolnhighwayman (in the tradition of a 1917 play and 1919 film), is traveling the Lincoln Highway this summer. He hopes to turn the journey into a book that “will be a mixture of popular history and an old fashioned traveler’s tale … like Shelby Foote meets Mark Twain.” James is already the author of The Malone Chronicles, a novel set in 1939 about a boy who runs away from home.
