Description

When Americans think of buses, the name Greyhound inevitably comes to mind. Avid bus enthusiast and historian, William A. Luke compiles ten dozen fascinating photographs depicting the great variety of buses the company has used from its beginning in 1914 to present. In addition to standard models from the Big Gray Dog's fleet there are examples of experimental models, unusual types operated at the 1933 Chicago World's Fair and the 1940 New York World's Fair, and timetables and sales brochures.

The author

Mr. Luke has had a life-long interest in buses. From driving buses and managing a bus company in his early years, Luke founded Bus Ride magazine (one of the premier trade journals of the bus industry) and also founded Buses International Association with members in 22 countries around the world. Now inducted into the American Public Transit Association Hall of Fame, Luke has written countless books and articles for various bus publications. He continues to visit and document bus manufacturers and bus systems all over the world. Linda has helped Bill put together many articles when they used to run a bus magazine together, and now has helped contribute toward a handful of books with Bill.
