Want to take a trip on America's backroads? Then listen to Joe Barrett as he reads the experiences of William Least Heat Moon on his travels across America on the blue highways—those highways that were so small they were printed in blue. In Moon's delightful book Blue Highways, the reader will enjoy meeting the people of rural America and observing their customs. The reader may even see their own town discussed or at least mentioned. Two towns near me were reffered to (Minnie and Mousie, Kentucky).

If you have the print version, pull it out and read along as Barrett tells (reads) the stories.

After listening (or reading) the material, the reader will have the urge to set out—not to Epcot or Disney World but to some small town with an unusual name that has captured his attention. After getting the idea of the book, the reader can start at any point, but I suggest you enjoy all his experiences.
