He is best known for Blue Highways. My favorite book by him was River Horse, about a journey across the US in a small boat. That's east to west, and very difficult to navigate. Lake Erie sure is brutal in the book.
This touches on a very favorite book genre of mine: nonfiction books of people taking small boats on long journeys in American waterways, especially the Mississippi. There was one in the works by a blogger I used to read. His name was Guyuss Baltaar. But he cut his journey short, and I can barely even find his name on Google any more. If anyone has any good books or blogs on such river journeys to point me to, please let me know. Big River Magazine has a lot of discussion and links for this also.
