Five top books about road trips

One title on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five top books on road trips:
by Larry McMurtry

Growing up in a landlocked Texas town, the highway was Larry McMurtry's river, offering mystery, adventure, endless possibility. In this wide-ranging work of nonfiction, the author of novels including The Last Picture Show and the celebrated Lonesome Dove series crisscrosses the country in search of a national character and the key to his own identity. From South Florida to North Dakota, from Long Island to Oregon, McMurtry contemplates the American obsession with travel and the pioneering spirit.
