Summary
A life-long quest for the real Fletcher Christian took the author from New Zealand to England, several times around the world, and then to isolated Pitcairn Island in the South Pacific, where descendants of Fletcher and his crew were still living in ways similar to those of their mutinous forebears
Summary
Hailed as a masterpiece of American travel writing, Blue Highways is an unforgettable journey along our nation's backroads. William Least Heat-Moon set out with little more than the need to put home behind him and a sense of curiosity about "those little towns that get on the map-if they get on at all-only because some cartographer has a blank space to fill: Remote, Oregon; Simplicity, Virginia; New Freedom, Pennsylvania; New Hope, Tennessee; Why, Arizona; Whynot, Mississippi." His adventures, his discoveries, and his recollections of the extraordinary people he encountered along the way amount to a revelation of the true American experience
