From the acclaimed author of Blue Highways , PrairyErth , and Roads to Quoz , a dazzling collection of travel tales from the road.

HERE, THERE, ELSEWHERE draws together for the first time William Least Heat-Moon's greatest short-form travel writing. Personally selected by the writer, these pieces take us from Japan, England, Italy, and Mexico to Long Island, Oregon, Arizona, from small towns to big cities, ocean shores and inland mysteries.

Including Heat-Moon's reflections on writing these pieces, HERE, THERE, ELSEWHERE is much more than the usual collection of amber; it is a coupled summation of craft and memory. A perfect treasury of prose and provocation for readers old and new, Heat-Moon's most recent work reveals his absolute mastery across pages many and few.

"Though most famous for his road trips around the U.S., acclaimed travel writer William Least Heat-Moon, author of the modern classic Blue Highways, ranges further in this collection of 30 essays written over the course of 30 years. Visiting Japan, England, Wales, Italy, New Zealand, and other distant locales as well as places closer to home, Heat-Moon once again offers readers thought-provoking observations and lyrical writing. Though many of the pieces were previously published in other forms in magazines, Heat-Moon has taken control of the editorial reins here, rearranging words and restoring deleted sections from the original versions. This is a must-read for his many fans - and it provides a great introduction for those new to his writing."
