imageThe writer who gave us the classic “Blue Highways” has written a new travel book about some recent journeys in the United States. The Los Angeles Times calls Roads to Quoz: An American Mosey “a lucid if looping account of three years of wanderings that covered some 16,000 miles, mostly in the company of the author’s wife.” The Aspen Times finds that Heat-Moon is “still quick-witted and keenly observant, if a little grandfatherly, and his notes from the American road still contain equal parts humor and wisdom.”
