“Utterly charming…a rollicking road show…you get the feeling that the entire nation consists of small neighborhoods in which he, and you, can wander…[Kuralt is] a national treasure.”  Washington Post Book World 
“It’s no surprise that a friend cultivated and named a daffodil after Kuralt: he’s one sunshiny fellow, and his America is just splendid in its geographic and cultural variations.”  Booklist
“This pleasant, genial book will be of interest to Kuralt fans.”  Library Journal
