Read full description of the books:
It's a shame that "A Walk Across America" and "The Walk West" don't get more attention. If these books had been written today, opposed to the 1970s, they would likely be much more popular. However, I'm glad they were written in the 1970s because the references take you back to that time. What really stood out most was how hospitable the people across America were to Peter and his wife. While this was the case everywhere, Peter mentioned that Texans (rural) were the most hospitable. Would that be the case today? I don't know. A lot of people think humanity is somewhat lost in America, but I'd like to think it's still out there.
This book goes well beyond walking and nice people. You really get to see the different ways many people live, from the bayou to the mountains of Colorado. And there were some dangerous scenes thrown in there as well. This must have been the journey of a lifetime, and Peter can truly say that he has lived -- opposed to have existed.
To give you an idea of how good the first book was, I searched every book store for the sequel (this book) and couldn't find it. Eventually, I found it in the local library system. And I usually don't use the library due to the lack of reading options.
I would highly recommend "A Walk Across America" and "The Walk West" to all readers. If you don't like them, I'll eat crow. Yes, giving out good recommendations is important to me. I want to remain a trusted source.
