ANNOTATION:
Moving through the woods and deserts, dirt tracks and highways to large cities and glorious wildernesses, the author observed America, and the Americans who inhabited it. What he saw was a lonely, generous nation too packed with individuals for single judgements; what he saw made him proud, angry, sympathetic and elated.

The book was was first published in 1962.
