Staff Reviews

One of Bryson’s first travel books and still one of his best.  In Lost Continent, Bryson travels through the small towns of middle America. With the outsiders eye and keen wit, Bryson will make you laugh out loud at our country. At the  same time will make you want to get in the car and head out on your own adventure.  Written in 1987, this was a timely book to revisit because it brought a renewed appreciation for those places in the U.S. that feel alien in this day and age.

— From Tracy


An unsparing and hilarious account of one man's rediscovery of America and his search for the perfect small town.
