Overview
The quintessential American vision of freedom and hope vibrant, compelling, and full of wonder
"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 love of America, his compassion for humanity, and his sense of language as jazz combine to make "On the Road" an inspirational work of lasting importance. Kerouac s classic novel of freedom and longing defined what it meant to be Beat and has inspired every generation since its initial publication more than fifty years ago.This Penguin Classics edition contains an introduction by Ann Charters.
