  • "The memoirs of a journey on the back roads of America."@en
  • "Records the author's travels on the back roads of America in the spring of 1978, detailing underestimated pleasures, simple lives, and the appreciation of a continuity with the past."
  • "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."
  • "Tells about the author's experiences, people he met and places he saw on his roundabout 13,000-mile trip down the back roads ("blue highways") and through small, forgotten towns."
