From the moment we started out in 'Orleans' and everywhere Charles went, he took me right along. My only regret is the trip passed way too fast. Actually had more fun then a few trips I've experienced first hand.
My family and I played this book as we crossed the country in our minivan and it made a wonderful companion. We thoroughly enjoyed Kuralt's vivid descriptions of places and poignant observations of people. We've listened to segments again and they are still wonderful and witty multiple times over.
I was really thrilled by this title. Charles takes you on a tour of America and you can only enjoy the ride. This was the most involving book on tape that I have ever listened to. I have passed it on to friends and family and they loved it. Too bad Charles had to have a mistress in Montana, that was the only bad this he ever did and my wife and I laugh about the part of the book where he goes to Montana thinking he really is just shacking up with his girlfriend.
His perspective on the cities he visited.
This is one of his best.
I miss his Sunday show.
Not Guildford! NYC, and damn proud of it. My mother's tongue used to cleave to the roof of her mouth from reading to me, now i pay others.
This admittedly sentimental view of 12 great American places peopled by Americans we will never see again, s a treasure. He wasn't a very nice man. Mean to his wife but a great observer and sensualist. a delight.
My all time favorite audiobook. It stays on my player full time. To hear his rich voice deliver what he wrote is a masterpiece.
Yes, it gives you a feel for the areas visited by Charles Kuralt and his great story telling ability.

I had heard this book prior to downloading it from this site, so I knew what to expect. Still, I could not help being wowed all over again. It is the perfect tale of one man's favorite American locations at their perfect time of year. The wide range of personalties that he encounters in many places, that I have never been, inspire me to travel there in the hopes that my experiences would be a fraction of how interesting Kuralt's are. The icing on the cake is Kuralt's narration. His timeless voice paints a vivid picture of America through his eyes.
I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did. My favorite chapters are Charleston, SC and Key West.
