The book 239 Days has been out of print for quite a while, but do not despair, there is a NEW book about Abdu'l-Baha's travels in America, published just in time to help you commemorate the 100th Anniversary of His historic visit.  Written by historian and scholar Robert Stockman, it is chock-full of stories, first-hand accounts, and a chronological guide to Abdu'l-Baha's travels and speaking engagements.  Its 400+ pages are rich with details that provide a personal glimpse into the private moments and public events that shaped the early American Community.

Here is what the publisher says:  This is the account of the journey of 'Abdu'l-Baha, the eldest son of Baha'u'llah and appointed head of the Baha'i Faith after his father's passing, across much of the United States in 1912. His exhausting yet exhilarating 239-day trek from coast to coast took him to fifty cities and towns, wehre he delivered up to four talks a day - about four hundred total - to approximately ninety-three thousand people on Baha'u'llah's message of the oneness of humanity and the principles of universal peace. This historic visit to the United States planted the seeds that would take root and germinate into the present-day American Baha'i community.
