"About 25 years ago, after his father's death, author Bill Bryson left England to take two car trips across the United States and revisit the roads of his youth. A native of Iowa ("I come from Des Moines. Somebody had to."), Bryson sets off from his childhood home in a borrowed Chevrolet Chevette and wanders 14,000 miles across 38 states in search of the perfect small town. The end result is a string of bitingly humourous anecdotes, seasoned with a touch of melancholy, that provide an intriguing look at America. Those who want to know more about Bryson's youth after reading The Lost Continent can pick up his 2006 memoir, The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid."

For a funnier, more light-hearted look at travel in America read Bryson's A Walk in the Woods.
