Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

About a quarter century ago, a largely unknown wanderer named William Least Heat-Moon wrote a book called Blue Highways. It was a travel book like no other, a book that revealed its author to be a chronicler of rare linguitic genius and empathy, a listener who knew that the small places can offer the biggest surprises. Heat-Moon, wrote one reader, was a travel writer as Faulkner was a country historian.Road to Quoz is Heat-Moon's long-awaited return to America's back roads. It is a lyrical, funny, and magisterially told chronicle of American passage, a journey into the heart of a nation almost desperate for meaning beyond consumerism and self-absorption, a book that invites readers to discover America anew. (Christian Science Monitor).

Synopsis:

In his previous book "Blue Highways," Heat-Moon had embarked on an American journey off the beaten path. Now, the author is back on the backroads, in this lyrical, funny, and touching account of his series of journeys into small-town America.

Synopsis:

About a quarter century ago, a previously unknown writer named William Least Heat-Moon wrote a book called Blue Highways. Acclaimed as a classic, it was a travel book like no other. Quirky, discursive, endlessly curious, Heat-Moon had embarked on an American journey off the beaten path. Sticking to the small places via the small roads--those colored blue on maps--he uncovered a nation deep in character, story, and charm.

Now, for the first time since Blue Highways, Heat-Moon is back on the backroads. ROADS TO QUOZ is his lyrical, funny, and touching account of a series of American journeys into small-town America.

I enjoyed the mosey as well as the sashay through rarely explored regions of the English language.

William Least Heat Moon continues his journey and the translation of his journey into writing that is both graphic and incredibly descriptive. He has chronicled his travels across America in his previous books and he continues the gold standard in this chronicle. Pay attention when reading this travel because he is subtle in a way that you do not find very often. All of his books are great and Blue Highways was the first to catch his many readers.
You can begin with this book and then be prepared to order the other books from Powell's.
