Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Here is a last chance to see the nature and fiber of our country through the eyes and words of Kuralt.” Library Journal
“Prose snapshots of remarkable unsung Americans...that approach poetry in their passion for the best words to celebrate a person, place, or American event.” Boston Herald
“Kuralt gives Robert Frost-like vignettes of roads less traveled. ” Denver Post
“Spend just five minutes with this book and chances are you'll be touched.” Houston Chronicle
“Kuralt's way of sharing his vision is keen and specific, yet nestled snugly into context. It's the context, the sense of being in place, that makes these moments American moments.” Florida Times-Union
“A night-table book that should be kept at bed-side to clear the mind for untroubled sleep. It is milk and cookies for the spirit.” Virginian-Pilot (Norfolk)
“Little stories always were Kuralt's forte. He could pack more poetry, more heart, into a brief TV report than just about anybody who ever picked up a microphone.” Lexington Herald-Leader
