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.

Review:

'Altogether wonderful . . . Heat-Moon loves the funky byways of America. . . . His destinations matter less than the infectious curiosity he brings to every journey' - Entertainment Weekly
Mr. Heat-Moon's enthusiasm for wherever he happens to be carries the day. If Roads to 'Quoz bears a message, it is that beyond the strip malls and chain restaurants, a complex and fascinating country is still out there for those who take the time to park, get out and look around' - Wall Street Journal
'This is a call to get out a map and explore rural America the beautiful. If urban life makes you feel like you're losing your mind and your way, set out to your own blue highway to quoz' - Fort Worth Star-Telegram
'Mr. Heat-Moon demonstrates such a sharp intelligence, relentless curiosity and fine phrasing that nothing more could be desired' - Dallas Morning News
'A Great American Gothic....Despite his vision of a society that has depleted far too much (forests, aquifers, coastlines) through its excesses, Heat-Moon's sense of humor remains intact' - Los Angeles Times

Book Description:

From the bestselling author of Blue Highways, another classic journey into America
