Travelling continuously from one American train station to another, Jarret Schecter photographed every image in this book from the views of his cabin window.
People, places, towns, emptiness - all aboard Amtrak, the national but surprisingly dilapidated rail service of the US. In a country where the majority of people travel by plane or bus, travelling by train is an underused phenomenon which is cheaper and often more efficient than is realised.

In beautiful large-format images,
America Off Track captures the variety of the landscape, from desert to cities, and the rewards to be had travelling by train.

America Off Track presents a unique landscape and perspective of the country, on an amazing photographic journey from the Wild West, through the eery and empty, to the bustling cities of the East.

Every picture through the window of a train.
