Reviews

LJ Reviews 1990 October #1

Kuralt describes this engaging autobiography as an incomplete remembrance of roads taken, breakdowns, misdirections, potholes, and detours. A love of travel, developed through trips along North Carolina country roads with his father, brought Kuralt to accept a job with CBS News in 1954. He began as a correspondent in the Congo, Cuba, and California, then was reassigned to presenting documentaries, including a North Pole attempt. He finally found his slot as a feature story reporter covering the ``pulse of the country'' by roaming the nation in his recreational vehicle. An entertaining book that is recommended for general readers who enjoyed Kuralt's best-selling collection of his news stories, On the Road ( LJ 9/15/85). Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 7/1/90.-- Fern Sikkema, Schnader, Harrison, Segal & Lewis, Washington, D.C. Copyright 1990 Cahners Business Information.

PW Reviews 1990 September #3

Fans of Kuralt's work on the CBS series Sunday Morning will find this autobiography a charmer as Kuralt reviews his career in print journalism and as a reporter for the electronic media. He recalls his most unusual and memorable programs and interviewees, from the family awaiting a soldier's return from Vietnam to a 92-year-old brickmaker who had been working since his early teens. Kuralt's vivid reminiscences include the anarchic horror of Zaire after independence, the dull sterility of Castro's Cuba, the cooperation of blacks and whites in building a park in Reno, Nev., and a Soviet dentist's message to the Americans who helped him survive a Nazi POW camp. The book is comic and poignant by turns. Photos not seen by PW. BOMC alternate. (Nov.) Copyright 1990 Cahners Business Information.
