Shows no signs of wear and looks very fresh, pristine condition. young British expatriate Tim Brookes had hitchhiked to California and Vancouver, back across Canada, and down to New York. Now, twenty-five years later, he?s back on the road. But he?s got a lot more on his mind these days. Artfully weaving between past and present, Brookes considers exactly why the proverbial road trip, once a crucial part of American youth education, seems to have all but disappeared, superceded by more expensive and less uncertain kinds of travel. Joining a venerable literary tradition that includes Huck Finn, Steinbeck?s beloved Charley, and Kerouac, Brookes? hilarious and strangely moving ' A Hell of a Place to Lose a Cow' is a brilliant inquiry into America's peculiar relationship with the open road. 1.50
