Staff Reviews


I read this while on a road trip across New England, and drove my mom a little nuts by constantly giggling and insisting on reading passages aloud while she tried to read her own book. I couldn’t help it though, because his books are so funny, so spot on, and so informative that they just beg to be shared!

— Flannery

Description


“The kind of book Steinbeck might have written if he’d traveled with David Letterman.” —New York magazine

An inspiring and hilarious account of one man’s rediscovery of America and his search for the perfect small town. 

Following an urge to rediscover his youth, Bill Bryson left his native Des Moines, Iowa, in a journey that would take him across 38 states. Lucky for us, he brought a notebook. With a razor wit and a kind heart, Bryson serves up a colorful tale of boredom, kitsch, and beauty when you least expect it. From Times Square to the Mississippi River to Williamsburg, Virginia, Bryson's keen and hilarious search for the perfect American small town is a journey straight into the heart and soul of America.
