I just finished reading "A Walk Across America", which was a Christmas gift this year. I remember being struck by a National Geographic article exerpt many (many) years ago, but had never gotten around to reading the whole book. Despite being a 30 year old story, I really enjoyed it. But I've always been a sucker for these "discovering America" stories, from "Blue Highways" to "The Cannibal Queen"...... and even "Into The Wild".
What can it mean?
