Read full description of the books Life on the Road:This has to be the funniest story of how I accidentally found a good book. I was at a used book store and saw this book, without it's dust jacket, and mistook it for Jack Kerouac's On The Road. As soon as I started reading it I realized my mistake but was completely enthralled by Kuralt's storytelling. His recounting of the beginnings of tv news journalism and the stories he had covered and people he had met along the way demonstrate how good he must have been at his job.
I had heard of him before but never understood his importance, and that of those working around the same time in television, to our modern day news broadcasts.
