Roads to Quoz : An American Mosey by William Least Heat-Moon

Having read Blue Highways, a classic travel book , many year ago, I  was pleased to stumble upon this audiobook, Roads to Quoz, on our shelves.  Quoz means something queer or out of the ordinary and Heat-Moon  succeeds again in finding  the extraordinary in the ordinary back roads of America.  In his first mosey in the  book , the author travels with his wife, Q, following the path of the Dunbar-Hunter expedition through an exploration of the Louisiana Purchase.  He proceeds to mosey through the back roads of Florida, Maine, New Mexico, Missouri, Montana, Oklahoma, and Texas and meets many characters along the way who make up this great country.    The author writes with great honesty and wit that makes the places and the characters come alive for us.  Heat-Moon has always written about “the road less taken” and this title is no different.    Read it  or listen to it for the perfect armchair travel this Labor Day weekend.
