I can't recall when my budding obsession with taking long walks first took hold, but I'm sure Peter Jenkins' A Walk Across America had something to do with it.
In addition to normal recreational hikes, I used to plan odd outings like 20+ mile hikes around my town, and once, while living away for a while, I took a bus 13 miles to the end of its route just to walk back. My apartment while I was at college was two miles away and I would walk every day. For my first job I lived 10 miles away and I walked the first 4 miles and took the bus for the rest. My sister and I once planned to walk the entire Appalachian Trail, and while my own life got busy as life tends to, she actually went and did it. Yes, she hiked the 2,000+ mile trail and it took her 5 months.
Anyway, this is Peter Jenkins debut account of his many adventures across America and throughout the world. I haven't read his other books with the exception of The Walk West, which completes his literal walk across America. Forget that one though. This one is much better. It's a journey of a man, accompanied by his forever companion Cooper, seeking something more in this life, to expand his horizons and open his eyes. The people he meets and the lessons learned have undeniably defined him.
