"In 'A Life on the Road,' [Kuralt] chronicles his boyhood traveling around North Carolina with his social worker father, and wanting never to come home; his early days writing for newspapers and radio and television news, at a time when nobody even knew what television news was; his promotion at the ripe old age of 23 to CBS News Correspondent, and his adventures for ten years thereafter, circling the globe from Cuba, Laos, Vietnam and the Congo to Bangkok and Bogota and all the way up to the North Pole. Finally, he writes, he asked his bosses at CBS if he could maybe come back for a while, wander the country and do feature stories." Time Magazine termed him "the laureate of the common man." This is the chronicle of that life.; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall; Signed by Author
