Here, There, Elsewhere by William Least Heat-Moon, 402 pages, read by Melody, on 02/22/2013

Here, There, Elsewhere is a charming collection of short stories from William Least Heat-Moon who lives just south of Columbia.  Heat-Moon is best known for his travel collection Blue Highways released in 1982 chronicling his journeys through small town America after he lost his job and he and his wife separated.  Heat-Moon has a very lyrical prose form that well suits his subject matter of the beauty and wonder that is found down every road.  I highly recommend Here, There, Elsewhere not just for the local connection but for Heat-Moon’s artistry of words.  Beautiful book.
