Second, Charles Kuralt's wonderment of this great country shines through in every miniature essay. I love his down-home tone and his ability to make each vignette come to life. Wonderfully readable!
One and two page tid-bits of Americana. Black and white photos. Sampling of info: Windmills in Texas; A Southern California Good Samaritan; A Gas Station Museum in Chicago; An opera singer who became a farmer; A small town newspaper printed on a Linotype machine; and many, many more.
