Description
Three decades ago, a largely unknown wanderer named William Least Heat-Moon wrote a book called Blue Highwaysa travel book like no other, crisscrossing the back roads of America and finding that the small places frequently offered the biggest surprises. Following that book and its companions PrairyErth and River-Horse, Roads to Quoz is less a particular journey than it is an album of lyrical snapshots taken on Least Heat-Moon's cherished byways, during his travels between those other quests.

"In his fifth book, this attentive listener and observer and sly wit in the mode of Twain reports on his quest for quoz, that is, 'anything strange, incongruous, or peculiar,' accompanied by his smart, funny lawyer-historian wife, Q."Booklist (starred review)

"Among his many adventures, Least Heat-Moon rides a bicycle along an abandoned railroad track, discovers a road to nowhere (built by a Florida county so local drug smugglers would have a landing strip), and comes up with what he believes is the real story behind the murder of his great-grandfather. Or maybe the highlights of these journeys are the people he meets along the way and their stories, like the man who tried to fund a school for disadvantaged children by providing lonely widows with special massages, or the artist who's turned his cabin into a walk-in kaleidoscope. Either way, few readers will be able to resist tagging along."Publishers Weekly (starred review)
