Here, There, Elsewhere By William Least Heat-Moon Hardcover, 405 pages (Little, Brown Publishing / $29.99) Thirty years ago, former University of Missouri English professor William Least Heat-Moon’s “Blue Highways” became a classic American travelogue. To commemorate that anniversary milestone, along with the separate re-release of the original 1983 bestseller about a trek across the nation’s roads less traveled, comes this colorful new collection of the author’s previously published short-form travel writing. “Here, There, Elsewhere” expands the scope of Heat-Moon’s encounters with the quirks, characters and topographical challenges of his international wanderings throughout Japan, England, Italy and Mexico, and well some additional discoveries he makes back in the good ol’ U.S.A.
