The memories my friend Charles Kuralt once gave us / Are echoed today by Gerry Hempel Davis / Who also loves driving our country’s back roads / Where America’s romance and beauty explodes. / With the power to touch, to inspire and move. / Somehow I know my friend Charles would approve.
(Charles Osgood )When I was a kid, Dinah Shore sang, ‘See the USA in your Chevrolet / America is asking you to call / Drive your Chevrolet through the USA / America’s the Greatest land of all.’ In this book, Gerry Davis heard Dinah’s call, and she sees the USA.
