About a quarter century ago, a previously unknown writer named William Least Heat-Moon wrote a book called Blue Highways. Acclaimed as a classic, it was a travel book like no other. Quirky, discursive, endlessly curious, Heat-Moon had embarked on an American journey off the beaten path. Sticking to the small places via the small roads--those colored blue on maps--he uncovered a nation deep in character, story, and charm. Now, for the first time since Blue Highways, Heat-Moon is back on the backroads. ROADS TO QUOZ is his lyrical, funny, and touching account of a series of American journeys into small-town America.

This is an extremely well-read audiobook. The quotes and individuals each voiced so uniquely as to make it easy to follow and enjoyable to listen to.

The book is made up of several different tales of the author's search for "quoz" (unique points of interest being my shorthand for that rare piece of vocabulary). Many of the tales act like short stories and most are interesting. A few felt like duds to me, however. Nevertheless Heat Moon's command of the English language is always impressive and beautiful to hear.
