Bill Geist grew up deep in the Midwest, went to work in New York, then turned his eye back on the nooks and crannies and marvels of the American back road.
For twenty years now, he's trolled the country's narrowest highways and byways for CBS, for great tales of small town America.
And he's found some doosies. Colorado gopher suckers. Illinois "moonburgers." A standstill parade in Minnesota. The airborne mailman, the cow photographer, and, of course, the roadkill gourmet. This is fun.
This hour On Point: off the road and deep in the grain with our small town man, Bill Geist.
Bill Geist, correspondent for CBS and author of "Way Off The Road"
