Postcards from the Road
Tales told by travelers are as old as human history. Marco Polo comes to mind. Before him, Chaucer reveled in the antics of folke longen to goon on pilgrimages. Whether called for a purpose or by pure wanderlust, what happens along the way becomes part of our culture - from the epic to the everyday, from the universal to the personal.
Seven thousand miles and twenty-three states by car. Richard Little combines his love of history and travel in these colorful stories of a road trip he and his wife Cherie took across America — keeping company with passengers as diverse as Woody Guthrie, Ogden Nash, and Huckleberry Finn. History and humor, "What would we find on roads less traveled?”
