Highway 61: A Father-and-Son Journey through the Middle of America
William McKeenISBN: 0393041646;
Book DescriptionA father-and-son road trip through some of the most musically fertile and diverse landscapes in America. Long-distance father William McKeen watched his son grow up during summers, holidays, and long weekends. Now, with Graham in college, the two take a summer road trip down Highway 61, the legendary road of the blues, from the Canadian border to the Gulf of Mexico. In cheap motels and smoky bars, with obscure bluesmen and barnstorming guitar heroes, they discover how the highway links rich and poor, black and white. As they venture together through magnificent country, walking the hometown streets of Bob Dylan and Mark Twain, standing at Robert Johnson's haunted crossroads, William searches for an epiphany to define his relationship with his son at this time of change. Journeying from the Delta Blues Museum to the Alachafaya Cafe, father and son come to realize that they have a permanent connection that can never be broken by age or distance. 10 b/w...
