On the Road with Charles Kuralt

Featuring Charles Kuralt with an introduction by Wallace Kuralt

"To read the front pages, you might conclude that Americans are mostly out for themselves...but you can't travel the back roads very long without discovering a multitude of gentle people doing good for others with no expectation of gain or recognition."

In this collection of short audio essays, Charles Kuralt takes us from the countryside to the big cities to introduce us to the fascinating people and places that only he could find. Kuralt captures the humor and compassion of ordinary people leading extraordinary lives.

From the bestselling book On the Road with Charles Kuralt, these classic stories represent Kuralt's defining, and perhaps finest, work. Never before released on audio, this collection ensures that his unforgettable voice will be heard by generations to come.

    " Such a comforting and happy book- the idea of hopping in your car, driving down back roads and through small towns, and discovering wonderful characters and magical places. Boy, am I in the mood for a road trip! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Ann | 11/6/2009

    " While I like listening to Kuralt's vignettes, this was a little different. It did not read as essay rather was just a written transcript of some of his interviews. But I love reading about the places he's been and things he's seen. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Claire | 6/2/2009

    " Sweet snippets of stories from his show. Charles Kuralt was a sweet man. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Anne M | 11/3/2007

    " This was a light read, very pleasant. Kuralt is a nice person to spend a few hours with. Not to be read with serious literature in mind, but rather a relaxing visit with a warm, thoughtful companion who shares his adventures. "
