I wanted to drive the American roads at the century's end to look at the country again, from border to border and beach to beach...
From earliest boyhood the American road has been a part of my life - central to it, I would even say. The ranch house in which I spent my first seven years sits only a mile from highway 281, the long road that traverses the central plains, all the way from Manitoba to the Mexican border... - Larry McMurtry

Author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel Lonesome Dove, Larry McMurtry sets out in Roads on an automotive odyssey exploring America's highways and the culture that has grown up on either side of them. My method, to the extent that I have one, is modeled on rereading; I want to reread some of the roads as I might a book, he writes. Crisscrossing America in search of the present, the past and himself, McMurtry's route is also his destination.
