Thanks, it is an excellent book.

You might also try The Great Train Robbery by Michael Crichton.
Thanks, yes, it is my favourite Micheal Crichton novel.

Are you interested in aviation? You might enjoy Beryl Markham's "West with the Night." Sadly I don't think it's available as an ebook.

Thanks. I just made a request for it at my local library.

And his later Three Men on the Bummel, about the same 3 blokes on a bicycle trip through Germany - but (from memory only) I think Montmorency stays at home this time.

For traveling in the actual American West in the 1860's, there is Mark Twain's Roughing It, Also some parts of 1850's steamboat travel on the Misissippi River in his Life on the Misissippi. Both Public Domain and recommended.
