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.

A wild ride

If you didn't read this in college, you should read it now. Let Kerouac take you back and forth from coast to coast with a steady stream of sex, booze, and jazz!

Classic Roadtrip Story

Best enjoyed during your own adventure, or underneath a cozy blanket at a cottage. Follow Kerouac's alter ego Sal across America and back again, while encountering various famous figures of the beat era.
