Summary
Traces the author's 2011 road trip from the southernmost to the northernmost points of the United States to experience firsthand the country's diversity and political tensions in the face of a historic economic recession
Summary
What really unites (and divides) the large and diverse populations of the United States? With his wife and two dogs in a truck pulling an Airstream trailer, author Philip Caputo poses this question to the people he meets on an epic, all-American road trip beginning at the southernmost point of the continental U.S. (Key West, FL) and ending at the northernmost point reachable by road: Deadhorse, Alaska on the Arctic Ocean. Caputo's smart (but never stuffy) wit brings to light the pithy, enlightening, and inspiring "home truths" of everyday Americans from the road. - Description by Dawn Towery
