  The endearing characters Heat-Moon met along the way were a greater challenge to find nearly thirty years later, but we were able to track down eleven of the individuals still living. We bring the reader up to date on most of the characters, and in Blue Highways Revisited we have side-by-side photographs of the individuals we found—Heat-Moon’s photograph of 1978 and ours almost three decades later.
  The references to page numbers (BH ##) throughout Blue Highways Revisited match the numbers in the original book and the current printings -- including the new Thirtieth Anniversary Edition of Blue Highways to be released in late 2012 -- so you can easily locate a passage and compare Heat-Moon's verbal imagery with our photographs taken some thirty years later.
