Roads to Quoz

An American Mosey

By William Least Heat Moon

Little Brown and Company, Hardcover, 9780316110259, 581pp.

Publication Date: October 1, 2008

Description
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.
