Bill Geist, a roving correspondent for CBS News, goes Way Off the Road in his tribute to quirky places and people in rural America. Never Mean-spirited and always respectful, Geist finds the humor in off-beat and odd celebrations and occupations. From a 92 year old paper boy who delivers the paper by airplane (and has had 5 heart attacks!) to the Iowa town that celebrates the summer solstice with a festival built around the sunset over the railroad tracks, or from the Prairie Dog vacumers in Colorado to the UFO believers in New Mexico, we meet people and places that make the reader laugh out loud. Filled with charming and interesting stories, this book will inspire you to turn off of the interstates and explore the places in America that are unique, fascinating and more than just a bit eccentric.
