The Lost Continent

Bill Bryson / Kerry Shale
In an ageing Chevrolet Chevette he drove nearly 14000 miles through 38 states to compile this hilarious and perceptive state-of-the-nation report on small-town America.From the Deep South to the Wild West from Elvis' birthplace through to Custer's Last Stand Bryson visits places he re-named Dullard Coma and Doldrum (so the residents don't sue or come after him with baseball bats). But his hopes of finding the American dream end in a nightmare of greed ignorance and pollution. This is a wickedly witty and savagely funny assessment of a country lost to itself and to him.Travel through small-town America with Kerry Shale's popular BBC Radio 4 reading of Bill Bryson's comic travelogue.
