Publisher's Summary

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

Now, for the first time since Blue Highways, Heat-Moon is back on the backroads. Roads to Quoz is his lyrical, funny, and touching account of a series of American journeys into small-town America.

Couldn't Hang On

I got through part 1 of 3, but the stories became deeper and deeper and less about the trip and journey they were on and more about historical events surrounding the people they met. The story was very interesting, and I would have enjoyed it more if it hadn't started dragging.

I made it through have of the second part and had to quit. On to my next book.

This truly is a mosey... if you are into a very slow moving book and good stories, this will work for you. If you are looking for story and adventure, you may want to pass.

Blue Highways this is NOT

At roughly halfway through, I found I'd fast-forwarded through as much of the book as I'd read (if not more) -- time to move on. Lots and lots of historical background, as well as personal asides, between the moments of actual travel narrative.
