Just saying - I really dislike Kerouac so this On the Road is WAY better.
On the Road with Charles Kuralt is snippets of experiences from his show. You definitely get the feeling that Kuralt was a sweet man who liked to think the best of his country. I kinda wish we had something like his show nowadays - exploring the back roads and meeting regular people. It was just the sort of lift I needed after reading a book about the worst things folks could do to eachother.
I give it a 5.
