Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 059519947X, Paperback)

"The Road to Mythville" is a collection of poems on the apocalyptic mythos of late-century America, drawing from McDaniel's decade-long sojourn across the nation as a journalist and Jack Kerouac-style poet, from the Southwestern deserts, to the Colorado Rockies, Northern California, New England and back again. A protege of the late Edward Abbey, McDaniel's poetry explores everything from Major League Baseball to environmental catastrophe. Influenced by Kurt Vonnegut, Thomas Pynchon and such poets as John Berryman, Robert Lowell and W.B. Yeats, this rich collection details the human face of a modern, post-punk Luddite.
