Summary
"Hardly anyone ever leaves Des Moines, Iowa. But Bill Bryson did, and after ten years in England he decided to go home--to a foreign country. In an aging Chevrolet Chevette, he drove nearly 14,000 miles through thirty-eight states to compile this hilarious and perceptive state-of-the-nation report on small-town America."--Container
Summary
When a native of Iowa returns from England to wander across America's heartland in search of the perfect small town, the result is a string of hilarious anecdotes and biting social commentary
