For 20 years beginning in 1967, Charles Kuralt wandered America's byways in search of the unusual and the overlooked. He and his small crew logged more than a million miles and wore out six motor homes. For his homespun vignettes of everyday life, Kuralt won an Emmy® and three Peabody Awards and became a household name.
Kindhearted, avuncular, and unquenchably curious, Kuralt pulled off the road for all sorts of people: horse traders and hex-sign painters, teachers and tinkerers, singing mailmen and steamboat captains, sociable folks and loners, like the man who lived on a glacier in the shadow of Mt. McKinley. By shining a spotlight on those who had gone unnoticed, Kuralt revealed that each of us is noteworthy.
Time capsules of a bygone era, these gentle stories are reminders of what made America great: honesty, hard work, community, character, touches of quirkiness, and rugged individualism. They remain deeply meaningful, poignant, and truthful today.
