Summary
Hailed as a masterpiece of American travel writing, Blue Highways is an unforgettable journey along our nation's backroads.
William Least Heat-Moon set out with little more than the need to put home behind him and a sense of curiosity about 'those little towns that get on the map -- if they get on at all -- only because some cartographer has a blank space to fill: Remote, Oregon; Simplicity, Virginia; New Freedom, Pennsylvania; New Hope, Tennessee; Why, Arizona; Whynot, Mississippi.'
His adventures, his discoveries, and his recollections of the extraordinary people he encountered along the way amount to a revelation of the true American experience.

I loved this book, a great book to listen to on long road trips. The narration is awesome; normally, I hate it when narrators take on regional accents, but Least-Heat Moon nailed them all, from the deep south to Texas to Vermont. He is a gregarious traveler and the kind of guy you'd love to have a beer with after work. He's one of the best, most intelligent storytellers of peregrinations in America, IMHO, far eclipsing Steinbeck or Kerouac. I'll be reading/listening to this one again.
