Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Have you ever dreamed of leaving everything behind and taking off to see the world? After completing an eight-thousand-mile walking trek from Pennsylvania, through Oregon, and on to Arkansas in his twenties, Bud Kenny wanted nothing more than to do it all again-but this time with his wife. The only problem was he couldn't find a woman who wanted to hike across America with him...until he met and married Patricia. Footloose in America follows the fifty-something newlyweds as they leave their home in Arkansas and start walking toward Maine. All they bring with them is their mule, Della, who pulls an electricity-generating wagon that converts into a stage upon which Bud performs his poetry. A tale of true love and extraordinary adventure, this unique travel memoir reveals a one-of-a-kind view of American culture. From the Amish people's perspective on what our excessively high-tech society overlooks to immigration issues as seen from a migrant worker's vantage point, the Kennys stumble across a colorful cast of characters throughout their incredible journey. More than simply inviting you to read about their unforgettable experiences, the Kennys' story will inspire you to pursue your own dreams-and discover the adventure that waits for you."
