H - QUEEN MARIE in AMERICA: My Glorious Adventure / HARDBACK
Hardback - Pub. 2018 / Author Dan Dimancescu.
Romanian Queen Marie’s 10,000 mile North American train voyage was an epic journey. Invited to America in 1926 to inaugurate a strangely conceived and unfinished ‘Maryhill Museum’ located high on the treeless banks of the Columbia River, Americans would discover a magnetic and very modern woman; the Queen would discover an America bursting into the post-WW I era as a maturing world power.
Her diary of that voyage, other first -person accounts, and numerous images, maps, and newspapers articles weave a rich one-of-a-kind tapestry of experiences, personalities, and events.
