"There's so much to see in this country," he says, relaxing outside a 38-foot Winnebago at the Country Living RV Park during a Monday visit to the central San Joaquin Valley. "No matter how many trips you take, you can never see it all."

Herzog says it's those dots -- communities big and small across the fruited plain -- that blend together like a pointillism painting to reveal a view of America that is different from the melting pot metaphor often used to describe the country.
