Customer Reviews

Enjoyable from cover to cover  August 10, 2011

An absolute gem of a travelogue! The author effectively weaves his early memories of traveling across the U.S. with the journey described in this textbook. The narrative is informative, witty, and peppered with an occasional sarcasm that is an absolute joy to read. Good product arrived ahead of schedule, and in new condition as advertised by seller. Overall I experience no problems.

The Lost Continent: Travels in Small Town America: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.


Bill Bryson's unsparing and hilarious account of his travels across America in search of the perfect small town. At the end of his journey, Bryson finds not the idyllic town of his dream, but a ture understanding of America--and a certainty that despite the poverty and ignorance, there is much good in the island.
