A Life on the Road
For more than 30 years, Charles Kuralt, the host of CBS News' "Sunday Morning," has traveled the world's byways. In this warm, deeply affecting memoir, Kuralt retraces the steps of a journey that began when he was a young CBS news reporter frantically trying to cover international events, a journey that took him to South America, Vietnam, and the Okefenokee Swamp. From an Arizona cowboy who confessed to wearing pantyhose under his chaps and a Moscow dentist who tearfully thanked former American POW's for saving his life in a German prison camp, to memorable meetings with Marlon Brando and Nikita Khrushchev---here is a story of triumphs and tragedies, swimming pigs and cattle roundups, and one man's lifelong love of the road and the people he's met along the way.
