From the Publisher. On the Road chronicles Jack Kerouac’s years traveling the North American continent with his friend Neal Cassady, “a sideburned hero of the snowy West.” As “Sal Paradise” and “Dean Moriarty,” the two roam the country in a quest for self-knowledge and experience. Kerouac’s classic novel of freedom and longing defined what it meant to be “Beat” and has inspired every generation since its initial publication in 1957.

Another anthem. Captures the double dream of imaginative and spatial freedom.

I figured that if I have read a book three times from cover to cover, it would be unfair not to list it here. On The Road painted a picture of the soul of America that I fell in love with.
