User reviews about the book
Deserves a place on every American's bookshelf!
A classic remembrance of the kind of journey that may no longer be possible, Blue Highways has been an annual re-read for me since the '70's. Off the superslabs, and away from anything that can be called a "city", this is a celebration of what is usually disdained as "flyover" country. The journey in Ghost Dancer is something that has strong visuals and a gravity of its own towards something slower and simpler. A definite Great American Travel Journal, firmly rooted in the time it was written, and yet timeless in its ability to entertain and enlighten.
