Our Favorite Book Title, Part 22

This month, we're calling it a toss-up. We thought it was a dead heat between two great titles: The Happiness Project: Or, Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun and Your Butt's in the Wrong Seat: A Manifesto for Public Transportation. The latter is the first-ever e-book we've recognized with this distinction. You can download it for free, as you can all the scores of other books at this remarkable site, which I've only been meaning to recommend for about, oh, two or three years. Anyway, you can review earlier favorite book titles here.

Our New West; Records of Travel Between the Mississippi River and the Pacific Ocean…with details of the wonderful natural scenery, agriculture, mines, business, social life, progress and prospects of Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, California, Oregon, Washington and British Columbia, including a full description of the Pacific railroad and of the life of the Mormons, Indians and Chinese
(by Samuel Bowles, 1869) - Is this the longest title ever?
Thanks for the link to the 'change this' site.

The happiness book has a comically long subtitle (which I think was purposeful), but yours is even longer. Thanks for that.
