Across America on Foot: 27 Stories of Adventure, Endurance, and Inspiration by Brian Risk Stark, Across America Author Group, et al. Why would anyone travel across the American continent on foot? The answer can be found in each of the 27 adventures in this compilation. This book is the first-ever collection of people who have crossed the USA from one side to the other, and in some cases, more than once. Some traveled east to west; others went vice versa. Some crossed without support and others had family or organizations assisting. These persons are from all walks of life: a recovering alcoholic, a retired CEO, a housewife, a teenager, and even a 10-year-old boy and his father. Some had a support vehicle while others were at the mercy of the elements with nothing more than a jogging stroller or a day pack. These are stories of adventure where auto and truck traffic were dangers of daily life. These are untold stories one cannot find in daily headlines. They are stories that can only be told by those who have traveled more than 2,500 miles Across America on Foot.
