Roads To Quoz: An American Mosey

William Least Heat-Moon

3 Reviews

Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Travel writing

'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

About a quarter of a 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 coloured blue on maps - he uncovered a nation deep in character, story, and charm.

Acclaimed by critics as a modern classic, ROADS TO QUOZ is Heat-Moon's long-awaited return to the back roads. It is a lyrical, funny, and touching account of a series of American journeys into small-town America.
