I just found Roads to Quoz, An American Mosey, by William Least-Heat Moon. If you have never heard of him, you ought to look him up! This book is about wandering around the backroads of America and the interesting/crazy/weird stuff (and people) that are out there. I'm only 30 pages in and there's already roadfood stuff. (The local small restaurant that is across from the arches but manages to stay in business on quality, not quantity) Looks like it will be a great book.
Back in the late 70's, I believe, he wrote Blue Highways, a travel story of crossing America on Route 50 from MD to CA. It was great. A John Steinbeck's Travels with Charley with a roadie attitude!
The guy only writes about about one book a decade, all non fiction, but I have loved them all.
