Book Excerpt :

Twenty-five years ago, a disillusioned young man set out on a walk across America. This is the book he wrote about that journey -- a classic account of the reawakening of his faith in himself and his country. "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 as they were twenty-five years ago -- 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, 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.

Book Short Summary:

This is a book about spiritual growth that occurred while I walked across America. I met numerous people who demonstrated their kindness and love towards me. The walk allowed me an opportunity to learn to forgive myself and understand my shortcomings through my conversation with Anna, my shadow. Now I am celebrating life while teaching the children of SPAVA the values of perseverance and persistence. Anna taught me to listen and to change position depending on the circumstances, whether it be for atmospheric weather or weather of life. The walk gave me the time to reconcile in my mind all the pent-up feelings that shaped me. Now I know to honor everyone and express my gratitude freely.

Book Short Summary:

Winner of the Nebraska Center for the Book Award, Travel • A Sigurd Olson Nature Writing Award Notable Book • Honoree of the Society of Midland Authors Annual Literary Award for Biography/Memoir Now that President Donald Trump has revived the Keystone XL pipeline that was rejected by former President Obama, Trespassing Across America is the book to help us understand the kaleidoscopic significance of the project. Told with sincerity, humor, and wit, Ilgunas's story is both a fascinating account of one man’s remarkable journey along the pipeline's potential path and a meditation on climate change, the beauty of the natural world, and the extremes to which we can push ourselves—both physically and mentally. It started as a far-fetched idea—to hike the entire length of the proposed route of the Keystone XL pipeline. But in the months that followed, it grew into something more for Ken Ilgunas. It became an irresistible adventure—an opportunity not only to draw attention to global warming but also to explore his personal limits. So in September 2012, he strapped on his backpack, stuck out his thumb on the interstate just north of Denver, and hitchhiked 1,500 miles to the Alberta tar sands. Once there, he turned around and began his 1,700-mile trek to the XL’s endpoint on the Gulf Coast of Texas, a journey he would complete entirely on foot, walking almost exclusively across private property. Both a travel memoir and a reflection on climate change, Trespassing Across America is filled with colorful characters, harrowing physical trials, and strange encounters with the weather, terrain, and animals of America’s plains. A tribute to the Great Plains and the people who live there, Ilgunas’s memoir grapples with difficult questions about our place in the world: What is our personal responsibility as stewards of the land? As members of a rapidly warming planet? As mere individuals up against something as powerful as the fossil fuel industry? Ultimately, Tresp

Book Short Summary:

Anthony “Tony” Roddy at age 56 put talk with walk, and walked the talk. Tony is living proof of some harrowing experiences that worked out, while over in Iraq. It wasn’t easier once I got back to the states. I found myself divorced after 21 years of marriage. Out for a walk is filled with empowering motivational useful advice, animated by moving stories. With “Esmeralda” my granddaughter’s stroller which has been modified to carry all my supplies for the trip, we walked from Wells Beach, Maine, to Imperial Beach, California, between April 19th and December 15th, 2015. I crossed 13 states in 244 days, walking approximately 3,073 miles. The book summarizes the formula for daily peace and happiness. This book is told with style and with a little suspense from state to state. Changing negative criticism to positive thinking is my goal with one step at a time.
