Praise

In the tradition of Studs Terkel . . . Years of motion are covered in visually descriptive language which wraps around perfectly chosen metaphors and shorthand images standing in for larger social phenomena.—Todd Mercer, ForeWord

“[Weston’s] eyes are sharp and her heart is in the right place. A gritty portrait of hard-pressed people moving through some of the least attractive real estate in America.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Brilliant, haunting, powerful, and ultimately inspiring . . . The nation needs to reckon with what Weston has uncovered.”—Juliet Schor

Traveling Light stands as that rare thing, a work of witness. But it is also that rarest thing, a great read. In the tradition of adventuresome road books and anguished social commentary, Weston has created a testament to the abiding greatness of our national soul.”—Luis Alberto Urrea, author of The Devil’s Highway

“[An] accessible gem . . . This book is a piece of 21st-century Americana in motion, and its characters and cities will resonate and linger with readers.”—Publishers Weekly

“[Weston] is gifted in making real contact with the most unlikely people who are not unlikely to her.”—Barbara Rich, Charlottesville Daily Progress
