Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Most of the small miracles that Kuralt unearths have to do with men and women dedicated to a craft, a goal, or a code of honor. Philadelphia Inquirer
“His people are the heart and soul of America, and his stories celebrate them—how they cling to their dreams, move to a singular beat, and stare down adversity…Gems of stories about uncommon common man.”  Associated Press
“A crazy quilt of American divided into nine thematic groupings reflecting, among other things, Kuralt’s interest in unsung heroes, joshers, big dreamers, small-town life, popular culture, language, and disappearing technologies.”  Denver Post
“Kuralt seeks out that rare American breed called unlikely heroes.”  Detroit Free Press
