On one side of the American brain there are appointment calendars, mortgage payments and monthly parking spots. On the other side, there's the open road. From hoboes and cowboys to Harleys and RVs. A new book looks at our national passion for wandering. Join Neal Conan to discuss American nomads.

Guests:

*Author of American Nomads: Travels with Lost Conquistadors, Mountain Men, Cowboys, Indians, Hoboes, Truckers and Bullriders
