Here, There, Elsewhere draws together for the first time William Least Heat-Moon’s greatest short-form travel writing. Taking us from Japan, England, Italy, and Mexico to Long Island, Oregon, Arizona, and more, Here, There, Elsewhere is a sharply observed, funny, and touching series of uncommon adventures narrated by America’s keenest writer of place, people, and sublime connection.

For decades, William Least Heat-Moon’s readers have been clamoring for him to gather his shorter pieces; now that wait is over. A perfect treasury of prose and wry provocation for readers old and new, Here, There, Elsewhere is further confirmation of Least Heat-Moon’s status as an American master.
