I grew up in Charlotte, NC, and wanted to be a writer from the time I was about 10 years old. Charles Kuralt was 7 years older, and an early over achiever. I loved the way he wrote and thought, the way he brought ordinary people and ordinary circumstances to our attention and made us see their specialness. I wanted to write like that. And I did. Because he had done it from jr. high, I felt I might, too. I met him and his first wife in NYC at the opening night of the Broadway play, Only in America. I was and always will be a fan of Kuralt's and of CBS Sunday Morning, his On the Road TV programs and books, and so I really appreciated this appreciation of his life and work. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0762711841, Hardcover)

Charles Kuralt should be remembered. He gave us stories of hope and of unheralded heroes. His more than 600 episodes of "On the Road," filed from every state in America, punctuated the daily barrage of riots, wars and demonstrations on the nightly news. "Two-minute cease-fires," Time magazine called them. We should remember Charles Kuralt for his rich, mahogany voice and slow talking that brought us the relaxed pace of "Sunday Morning." And for his seven best-selling books. So many stories. So many memories.
