Overview

All New Journeys From The New York Times Bestselling Author Of A Life On The Road

I keep thinking I will find something wonderful just around the bend.

Ever since October 1967, when he set off in a battered motor home to explore America and talk to its people, Charles Kuralt has been one of our premier chroniclers -- a man who has helped us see and celebrate our country in a way we never had before.

After retiring from CBS News in 1994, he set out to spend a perfect year in America -- traveling to his twelve favorite American places, in just the right month for a visit to each. With his well-known warmth, humor and insight, he shows them to us now in Charles Kuralt's America.

From Montana in September and Alaska in June to winter in Cajun country and the North Carolina mountains in spring, Kuralt's accounts are filled with people, stories and experiences. Suffused by a poet's love of language and rich in the spirit and flavor of this infinite and varied land, Charles Kuralt's America is, like its author, a national treasure.

In 1967, journalist Charlie Kuralt set off in a battered motor home to explore America firsthand. In this wonderful memoir that spans some thirty years, Kuralt recounts his many journeys and adventures all across the country, from Alaska to Cajun country, and from northern Minnesota to the Florida Keys.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Former CBS newsman Kuralt's tales from the road spent 17 weeks on PW's bestseller list. (Oct.)
Library Journal
After serving 37 years as a reporter at CBS, Kuralt retired and set out on a trip to see his favorite American locations at their best. During the course of a year, he traveled across the country and stopped, for example, at Charleston, South Carolina, for the azaleas in March and Woodstock, Vermont, for the fall colors in October. In this journal, the author records the people, places, and pets he encountered. One of the most interesting chapters in the book is the final one, set in Manhattan, Kuralt's hometown, in December. Kuralt describes small-town New York, a large city composed of tiny, personal neighborhoods. This pleasant, genial book will be of interest to Kuralt fans. Recommended for public libraries.-Caroline Mitchell, Washington, D.C.
