- Butko's easygoing, state-by-state account is a fun amble ... not overly nostalgic, yet indulging in remembrances of old diners and corny roadside attractions, like the Shoe House, a five-story building shaped like a work boot in Pennsylvania. Butko peppers the narrative with quotes from early 20th-century travelogues, and the inclusion of snapshots and old postcards establishes a chatty ambience.... [A] detailed and well-illustrated travel diary.
