James McCommons


James McCommons has been a journalist for 25 years, publishing hundreds of magazine articles, many of them focused on ecology, the environment and economics. In 2008, he rode 26,000 miles on intercity Amtrak trains to experience the current passenger rail system and interview decision makers around the country. The result was the book Waiting on a Train, published in 2009 by Chelsea Green and named by “The Library Journal” as one of its best picks of 2009.
