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

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
