Here, There, Elsewhere:Stories from the Road

William Least Heat-Moon

The term "armchair traveller" must have been coined by someone with a book by William Least Heat-Moon (Blue Highways) in hand - writing so crisp and sensuous that you can close your eyes and be somewhere else. From mundane and tacky to exotic and rare, every place he visits holds something particularly unique that he grasps and puts so convincingly into words for the rest of us. This selection is made up of short writings, mostly magazine articles from thirty years of places, people, and observations.
