Years ago I read A Walk Across America and I enjoyed it throughly. I had looked for a sequel to this book and just recently I found it at a flea market. This book captures in minute detail the joys, the hardships and the every day happenings that took place during their long trek across America, beginning in Louisiana. I am a hiker and want to hike the Appalachian Trail soon. Reading about his trip I think the Appalachian Trail would be a "picnic" in comparison to his saga. The language used in this book conveys clearly the feelings and the details and great sights experienced by Peter and Barbara during their long trip. At one point in their trip, they stayed for over six months at the ranch of the Vickers, a great couple in their 60's who treated them as their children. The story of the Vickers is interesting enough to write a book, similar to The Thorn Birds, except that it would be all true. In sum, I would recommend this book to anyone who read the first one and to anyone who likes traveling, especially exploring on foot the wonderful sights that the U.S.A. has to offer.

I read this book many years ago, and it still rings true. I love to read about adventures of people who have walked great distances across the country, and who have opened up their minds to meeting the most interesting people along the way.

I didn't care to much for it. I liked the two books before it.
