In his two decades of "On the Road" reports for CBS News, Charles Kuralt not only made the RV life seem worth living, he also gave us the best feature reporting on TV. Now he presents the best of the best, highlights from his chats with typical Americans: a 104-year-old runner, the collector of the world's largest ball of string, a guy who built a car that runs on corn cobs. What sets Kuralt apart is that he doesn't treat these people like quaint oddballs; he shows real affection for them and for the country. Utterly charming.
