New York: Viking, 1987. First American edition. A story of ideas in which two companions, traveling and talking together, explore the hopes and dreams that animate both them and the people they encounter. Set in almost uninhabitable regions of Central Australia, this books asks and tries to answer these questions; Why is man the most restless, dissatisfied of animals? Why do wandering people conceive the world as perfect whereas sedentary ones always try to change it? Why have the great teachers--Christ or the Buddha--recommended the Road as the way to salvation? Do we agree with Pascal that all man's troubles stem from his inability to sit quietly in a room? Square price clip to jacket flap. First American edition. A fine copy in a near fine jacket that has a square price clip.
