Notes

Description
Over a quarter of a century ago, a previously unknown writer named William Least Heat-Moon wrote Blue Highways, a book unlike any other. Driven by an insatiable curiosity to explore the winding back roads, overlooked towns, and forgotten histories that have directly-or indirectly-shaped our culture, Heat-Moon uncovered a nation filled with character, depth, and charm. Now, for the first time since Blue Highways, Heat-Moon is back on the road, leading us on a remarkable 16,000 mile mosey in search of "quoz": the strange, incongruous, and peculiar things in life that connect us with existence. This book is a lyrical, funny, and magisterially told chronicle of passage, a journey into the heart of a nation almost desperate for meaning beyond consumerism, and an invitation to discover America anew.
