CHARLES KURALTSHOULD BE REMEMBERED. He
gave us stories of hope and of unheralded heroes. His more than 600
episodes of "On the Road," filed from every state in America,
punctuated the daily barrage of riots, wars and demonstrations on the
nightly news. "Two-minute cease-fires," Time magazine called
them. We should remember Charles Kuralt for his rich, mahogany voice
and slow talking that brought us the relaxed pace of "Sunday Morning
with Charles Kuralt." And for his seven best-selling books. So
many stories. So many memories.
"I objected to doing the 'On the Road'
pieces at first . . . but with the very first piece he did, I was
convinced that we better get them on the air."Walter
"One of his great tricks was to have
three offices. There was no finding him, and that was exactly the way
he wanted it."Peter Freundlich, "Sunday Morning"
"Charles sometimes played down his television
pieces as unimportant or fluff. But he really wanted to communicate
to us all that there is hope. How in the world can you call that unimportant?"Wallace
"The flash was still blazing in my eyes,
and I looked up and jokingly asked, 'Who do you really like, Charlie?'
And he said, 'You.' That's when I fell in love with Charlie Kuralt."Barbara
Simmons Hannah, first girlfriend
"When we hung up, he said, 'I love you,
buddy.' And that was the last time we spoke. He had no premonition that
the end was that near."Loonis McGlohon, friend
An intellectually stimulating collection of insightful
and occasionally poignant commentaries, Charles Kuralt's People is
very highly recommended reading for students of the human condition in
and legions of Charles Kuralt fans in particular. — Midwest Book
