When Lou Schell and her husband Fletcher first read Charles Kuralt's America, the two were captivated by the stories of his travels and the people he met along the way. The Schell's began planning their dream trip: a year-long Odyssey tracing Kuralt's route around the country, visiting his favorite U.S. locations during their most scenic seasons. They would spend time in each town he'd chronicled, perhaps even meeting some of the characters he'd described so vividly. Fletcher's sudden death put an end to that dream for awhile, but Lou couldn't shake the feeling this was a trip she was supposed to take. At the age of 77, Lou Schell gathered her children to her home on a Sunday afternoon and presented them with the news: she would be spending the next year traveling America - and she would be spending their inheritance to do it. Her children's response? "Go for it." While Lou began the trip with her 72 year old sister Janie, Janie was unable to complete the trip. Undaunted, Lou continued on alone. For the next several months, she drove from city to city, staying a full month in each location for so she could fully experience its culture, people, food and ambiance. In the pages of Revisiting America you'll join Lou as she shares a courtyard--and snacks--with Iggy the Iguana in Key West, dines at The Fat Hen restaurant in Charleston and takes an intrepid stroll across a mile high swinging bridge in Blowing Rock, North Carolina. Join this ever-young adventurer as she milks life for all it's worth, making friends from New Orleans to Taos, and Boothbay Harbor, Maine to Ketchikan, Alaska, and proving to everyone who hears her story that it's never too late to follow your dream.

Here, for the first time, is the private and most intimate correspondence of one of America's most influential and incisive journalists--Hunter S. Thompson. In letters to a Who's Who of luminaries from Norman Mailer to Charles Kuralt, Tom Wolfe to Lyndon Johnson, William Styron to Joan Baez--not to mention his mother, the NRA, and a chain of newspaper editors--Thompson vividly catches the tenor of the times in 1960s America and channels it all through his own razor-sharp perspective. Passionate in their admiration, merciless in their scorn, and never anything less than fascinating, the dispatches of The Proud Highway offer an unprecedented and penetrating gaze into the evolution of the most outrageous raconteur/provocateur ever to assault a typewriter.

Incisive essays on Patty Hearst and Reagan, the Central Park jogger and the Santa Ana winds, from the New York Times–bestselling author of South and West. In these eleven essays covering the national scene from Washington, DC; California; and New York, the acclaimed author of Slouching Towards Bethlehem and The White Album “capture[s] the mood of America” and confirms her reputation as one of our sharpest and most trustworthy cultural observers (The New York Times). Whether dissecting the 1988 presidential campaign, exploring the commercialization of a Hollywood murder, or reporting on the “sideshows” of foreign wars, Joan Didion proves that she is one of the premier essayists of the twentieth century, “an articulate witness to the most stubborn and intractable truths of our time” (Joyce Carol Oates, The New York Times Book Review). Highlights include “In the Realm of the Fisher King,” a portrait of the White House under the stewardship of Ronald and Nancy Reagan, two “actors on location;” and “Girl of the Golden West,” a meditation on the Patty Hearst case that draws an unexpected and insightful parallel between the kidnapped heiress and the emigrants who settled California. “Sentimental Journeys” is a deeply felt study of New York media coverage of the brutal rape of a white investment banker in Central Park, a notorious crime that exposed the city’s racial and class fault lines. Dedicated to Henry Robbins, Didion’s friend and editor from 1966 until his death in 1979, After Henry is an indispensable collection of “superior reporting and criticism” from a writer on whom we have relied for more than fifty years “to get the story straight” (Los Angeles Times).
