Jack Kerouac: First Road Warrior Book Pick




Jack Kerouac was born in Lowell Massachusetts in 1922.  He would change the face of modern America and the nature of writing.    This book is not really specific to one state, it is specific to all of America.  So I have decided to read a series of road warrior books alongside my state reading books.  The state specific writers describe their quite lives inside gated communities, while the road warriors go buzzing by on the interstate; the road warriors may stop by for a bite to eat, but their domain is the road and must set out again before the trap of quite living stills their flighted feet.

I am excited to finish the journey I began in high school almost twenty years ago, but never did finish.
