"Bob Dylan conjures the American highway as a site of alienation, absurdity, and escape in his early catalogue of songs, from 1962 through 1965. He follows in the footsteps of the road narratives of Walt Whitman, John Steinbeck, Jack Kerouac, Woody Guthrie, and the folk-bluesmen that preceded him, but describes the road in more ambivalent terms. This discussion uses close readings of some of Dylan's "road songs" from his first six albums to discern the source of his ambivalence about the road. The songs are contextualized within their socio-historical moment, where Eisenhower contrived the interstate highway as a cold war escape-route, and the civil rights movement re-appropriated the road as a site of protest against institutional racism."

A Coming of Age True Adventure and Travelogue, focusing on the American West.Undaunted is a true story of a young man's adventures and travails as a hitchhiker on the highways of the American Southwest and Pacific Northwest during the 1970s. The story is a culmination of true adventure, self help philosophy, and travelogue, rolled into a personal and somewhat eclectic narrative.Have you ever passed a hitchhiker and wondered what it would be like to hit the road and wander the back roads of America?There's something mysterious, and almost romantic, about the free spirit of a hitchhiker. And despite the inherent dangers of accepting rides from strangers, during the 1960s and 1970s, catching rides on your thumb and the kindness of strangers was a rite of passage for many young people with nowhere special to go, and nothing to do-other than meet people and see the world.Undaunted is a travelogue of discovery, wrapped in the culture of a restless time in America when young men and women took to the roads to find themselves. The author shares his hitchhiking adventures in this book and takes you along for the ride as he explores America penniless and homeless, on the wheels of a lust for the open road, the generosity of strangers, and a restless yearning to see what is around the next bend in the road, with a hitchhiker's guide to the Pacific West style.This is the large print edition.
