Geist talks about Greenwood, Viking in his new book about small-town America
Amy McCullough, Staff Writer - If the city of Greenwood ever needs a new name, a suggestion is "Fred, Mississippi."

That's the recommendation of "CBS Sunday Morning" correspondent and author Bill Geist in his new book "Way Off the Road," now available at Turnrow Book Co.

Geist serves up hilarious and intriguing tales of small-town America garnered from a 5,600-mile road trip across the nation.

Experiences include a visit to a rural Kansas town - "I asked our motel desk clerk for the name of the best restaurant in the area. After mulling it over, he answered: 'I'd have to say the Texaco, 'cuz the Shell don't

WAY OFF THE ROAD
New York Times - United States - A combination of Alexis de Tocqueville and Charles Kuralt, Bill Geist has been reporting on “the peculiar charms of small-town America” for 20 years as the roving correspondent for “CBS News Sunday Morning.” Geist’s “Way Off the Road” is a breezy account of his most recent travels off the beaten, and sometimes left-for-dead, paths.

Geist tells the story of his 5,600-mile R.V. odyssey looking for slightly odd but lovable characters in the towns where everybody knows your name. With

DesMoinesRegister.com - Des Moines, IA, USA - Bill Geist may hold an Iowa State Fair record for eating the most pork chops on a stick.

The longtime correspondent for "CBS News Sunday Morning" made a stop at the fair in 2004 and is proud to say he ate seven - that's right, seven - of the handheld pork delights.

The experience in Iowa is just one in a host of hilarious tales that the well-traveled Geist, who has been with "Sunday Morning" for 20 years, shared in his unique, deadpan manner in a phone interview last week.
