North Country: A Personal Journey by Howard Frank Mosher (c1997)

Hailing from, and a vocal champion of, the North Country of Vermont, Howard Frank Mosher had long wanted to explore the "north country" of the entire United States. So, to mark his 50th birthday, he did just that and set out on a solo east-to-west coast-to-coast roadtrip across America, opting to hug the U.S./Canada border all the way. The resulting travelogue makes for an enjoyable read as Mosher humbly dabbles in the local history and current state of affairs at varied stops along his chosen route.

Makes me want to hit the road myself... but at this time of year, I think I'll head south.
