    A Long Way From Home is a great memoir of Tom Brokaw's recollections of growing up in the American Heartland from the end of

    Not as good as his other books, but still worth reading.

    A Long Way From Home takes you a long way from home, to the book store

    Tom Brokaw takes you on a life of experiences and fun through all of the amazing things Tom Brokaw had been through and covered for NBC. I proudly rate it 5 stars because no biographer or Tom Brokaw studier could say this good of a story with quotes like 'I put my town in a rearview mirror and drove away.' It's phenomenal. A+++++++++!

    He never ceases to amaze me.

    Tom Brokaw is not only one of the most trusted, familiar faces to the American people, but now he has also gained the title of an outstanding American author. His personal perspective on the American Heartland is one that I can relate to and appreciate. He also does a remarkable job of conveying what life is like in rural America to those who have yet to step foot there. I've always been a huge fan and admirer of Mr. Brokaw's and this book just reieterates those feelings for me. This is a must read for anyone interested in vivid, creative writing on the comforting subject of life in America.
