    Lonesome Traveler - Jack Kerouac


    A collection of short pieces "connected together because they have a common thread: Traveling" ; by author who "read the life of Jack London at 18 and decided to also be an adventurer, a lonesome traveler."

    Don't let the cover fool you!
    The two best pieces are in (1) San Francisco and Northern California - "The Railroad Earth" and (2) Washington state - "Alone on a Mountaintop".

    Here is recording of Kerouac reading first part of "The Railroad Earth" accompanied by Steve Allen (!) on piano.

    Dr. Wankler repped this.
