About the Book

He bought the car a dozen years ago. Together, they traveled every mile of every road on his highway map, a 250,000 mile journey to discover the real America beyond the interstate. Real people. Obscure places. Forgotten facts. His story unfolds in Missouri, but it could be about any state, any traveler who drives into America’s hidden heart. This is the first book from his now three-volume series.

“…irreverent sense of humor.”

Tom Uhlenbrock, St. Louis Post Dispatch

“No one knows Missouri’s backroads like John Robinson.”

Jim McCarty, Rural Missouri Magazine
