William Least Heat-Moon’s journey into America began with little more than the need to put home behind him. At a turning point in his life, he packed up a van and escaped out of himself and into the country. The people and the places he discovered on his roundabout trip down the back roads and through small, forgotten towns are unexpected and full of the spark and wonder of ordinary life.
