Mr. Kurait spends a month in each section of the country and he makes you feel as if you are there with him. It is interesting reading whether you love to travel or just wish you could travel to these places.
Thoroughly enjoyed this chatty book! Kuralt goes on a 12-month tour of America, staying in a different region each month. He describes the people, local culture and surroundings of each in a most engaging, personal manner.
