". . . irreverent sense of humor."
--Tom Uhlenbrock, St. Louis Post Dispatch
Hats off to John for taking good notes in his role as modern-day explorer of Missouri's final frontier. His books would make a better history lesson than most textbooks. --Jim McCarty, Rural Missouri Magazine
"His stories, often humorous or whimsical, paint portraits of the 'real' Missouri beyond the interstate: the people, the food, the anomalies that provide even the most obscure places with unique identities." --Missouri Historical Review
Robinson recounts his adventures "in two breathlessly hilarious books... They really are amusing. I've read and recommend them highly. Do not read after 9:30 p.m. unless you want to stay up until they are finished. Seriously." --Jo Schaper, TravTalk
From the Author
"...on my way, I took a detour. And another. With no plan, I
began a string of shortcuts that lasted beyond a dozen years, a journey
that left my tire tracks along every mile of every road on my highway

The book is not just about places, but really gives you a sense of the local culture and characters; through John Robinson's articulate and entertaining style, with a lot of dry humor sprinkled in. The book is much more of a story than a dry historical document. I believe this book really captures the heart of the land and people of the state where I grew up, but I also think it would be enjoyable and informational for anyone with an interest in small town life in the U.S.
