Overview

For more than 30 years, Charles Kuralt, the host of CBS News' Sunday Morning, has traveled the world's byways. In this warm, deeply affecting memoir, Kuralt retraces the steps of a journey that began when he was a young CBS news reporter frantically trying to cover international events, a journey that took him to South America, Vietnam, and the Okefenokee Swamp. From an Arizona cowboy who confessed to wearing pantyhose under his chaps and a Moscow dentist who tearfully thanked former American POW's for saving his life in a German prison camp, to memorable meetings with Marlon Brando and Nikita Khrushchev---here is a story of triumphs and tragedies, swimming pigs and cattle roundups, and one man's lifelong love of the road and the people he's met along the way.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Kuralt recalls memorable experiences of his journalism career: we see a family awaiting a soldier's return from Vietnam, the cooperation of blacks and whites building a park in Reno, Nev., the dull sterility of Castro's Cuba. ``Comic and poignant by turns,'' said PW . ``Fans of Kuralt's work on the CBS series Sunday Morning will find this autobiography a charmer.'' Photos. Author tour. Nov.
Library Journal
Kuralt describes this engaging autobiography as an incomplete remembrance of roads taken, breakdowns, misdirections, potholes, and detours. A love of travel, developed through trips along North Carolina country roads with his father, brought Kuralt to accept a job with CBS News in 1954. He began as a correspondent in the Congo, Cuba, and California, then was reassigned to presenting documentaries, including a North Pole attempt. He finally found his slot as a feature story reporter covering the ``pulse of the country'' by roaming the nation in his recreational vehicle. An entertaining book that is recommended for general readers who enjoyed Kuralt's best-selling collection of his news stories, On the Road LJ 9/15/85. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 7/1/90.-- Fern Sikkema, Schnader, Harrison, Segal & Lewis, Washington, D.C.

    a great book

    This bok is truly fun to read. It describes to you the more down-to-earth aspects of the famous things in history, as well as the sometimes even more interesting obscure events. Both are intersting to see through the eyes of kuralt. I highly recommend this book.
