    1 thought on “Charles Kuralt's American Moments”

    1. A nice, quick read. It was a trip through America, and a trip back in time. I enjoyed reading every little vignette. Gives you a different perspective on American life that was at one time and, amazingly, actually still is. I can still hear his voice, and that is the way to read this book, with Charles Kuralt narrating the words for you.

    2. Loved Charle Kurault but these these stories were so short that they did not even qualify as vignettes.

    3. Wow. Charles Kuralt has been dead for 18 years as of this writing. I remember enjoying him on CBS News Sunday Morning which I considered a respectable show even if it didn't give you the heaviest hitting news. In fact it was because it didn't give into sensationalism that I considered it respectable. This book has the same tone as portions of that show.I always enjoyed Kuralt's style of speaking and it works just fine when written. I kept hearing Charles Osgood's voice as I read the book, but th [...]

    4. As I said, “Charles Kuralt’s American Moments” is a collection of his stories of America, given in what were to be ninety-second long broadcast’s; a brief but lasting impression of his views on the American spirit and the people who create it. From the Cape of Disappointment in Washington State, to the deer of the lower Keys of Florida; from Mr. Ralph Woodside, who repairs victrolas in his Georgetown, Mass. workshop, to Naomi Lewis, the postmaster in Ochopee, FL the smallest post office [...]

    5. Heartwarming tales of the American spirit through roads less traveled. Kuralt was a one of a kind American treasure that will never be replicated. No one else could describe the odd, unique, or just plain mundane quite like Kuralt. This reads like a good travel guide to see the America that AAA or any other guidebook will not point you to.

    6. This is a compilation of Charles Kuralt's ninety second TV anecdotes that he presented over the years. They are pure Americana telling about people, places and things that truly reflect the lifeblood of our nation. The book is a quick, light read.

    7. Vignettes about places, people, and things that struck Kuralt's fancy and represent what is good about America. This are such sketchy vignettes that they don't really add much to our knowledge of America life.

    8. I loved Charles Kuralt, but this book was disappointing. It was basically the text for the 30 second segments they used to air. Impossible to get interested or learn anything from the stories.

    9. been a while since I've read this book, but I remember how much I enjoyed it. good stories about real people who make America what it is.

    10. I never viewed the authors tv travel shows.The places visited in the book were short but wetted the appetite enough to be romanticized enough to visit or read more about.
