A Conversation with William Least Heat-Moon

Amazon.com's Byron Ricks recently caught up with the peripatetic Least Heat-Moon to talk about maps, rivers, and the primacy of natural things.

Sailing Away
Reading the opening chapters of Jonathan Raban's brilliant Passage to Juneau may make you pine for a boat and a waterborne writing den of your own. But as Raban sails northward through the Inside Passage from Washington's Puget Sound to Alaska, deftly weaving in descriptions of the Northwest Indians whose canoes plied these waters before him; of the explorers, fur traders, and settlers who came later; and of the physics of waves and turbulence, it grows clear that the costs of "going to sea in your own boat for the going's sake" can be high indeed. A wonderfully literate narrative full of thoughtful observations, Passage to Juneau is a breathtaking journey into the wilderness of the human heart. Be sure to browse other favorites on Kimberly Brown's travel bookshelf this month.

Editor's Choice
Into the African Unknown
In the early 1970s, adventurer-author Richard Bangs and his buddies set out to run the last unexplored rivers in Africa--the Baro, the Blue Nile, the Omo, the Awash--and finally realized their goal by rafting the Tekeze some 23 years later. The Lost River chronicles these extraordinary leaps into uncharted waters and explores the bonds forged--and the price paid--in the pursuit of extreme adventure.

Hola, Gringos!
Hola, Gringos!
Novelist Tony Cohan and his artist-wife traveled to San Miguel de Allende on what was to be a brief vacation from their life-in-the-fast-lane L.A. lives, but soon found themselves succumbing to the spell of the place. They decided to trade in their hotel room for a rented cottage, and eventually, bought a 250-year-old hacienda badly in need of repair. On Mexican Time, due out in January, is a thoughtful and poetic take on Mexican culture, viewed from the expat's seat.
