"I started out searching for myself and my country," Peter Jenkins writes, "and found both." In this timeless classic, Jenkins describes how disillusionment with society in the 1970s drove him out onto the road on a walk across America. His experiences remain as sharp and telling today-from the timeless secrets of life, learned from a mountain-dwelling hermit, to the stir he caused by staying with a black family in North Carolina, to his hours of intense labor in Southern mills. Many miles later he learned lessons about his country and himself that resonate to this day-and will inspire a new generation to get out, hit the road, and explore.
"Compelling. . . . A walk through Peter Jenkins's book reveals a highway, a pioneer-and an American spirit seldom sought, not often found, not easily forgotten once glimpsed."-Grand Rapids PressAuthor:
