FAR-FLUNG HUBBELL: Essays from the American Road.
Edition: First printing.
New York: Random House, (1995) dj. Hardcover first edition - A collection of thirteen essays, many originally published in the New Yorker, which take the reader on a series of journeys across the United States. "Because she traveled widely in her three-quarter-ton pickup delivering the honey she made on her Ozark farm, several of Hubbell's pieces evoke life at truck stops and in the small towns she passed through. In 'The Great American Pie Expedition,' she describes the mouthwatering, summer-long odyssey across the U.S. she embarked on in search of the best restaurant pies and concludes, 'Never eat pie within one mile of an interstate highway.' In other articles, she interviews a woman who recently sighted Elvis, examines the state of five-and-dime stores, visits a magicians' convention and shares her love of the outdoors."
