BOOK TITLE by AUTHOR

A ROAD TRIP INTO AMERICA’S HIDDEN HEART –
Traveling the Back Roads, Backwoods and Back Yards

He bought the car a dozen years ago. Together, they traveled every mile of every road on his highway map, a 250,000 mile journey to discover the real America beyond the interstate. Real people.

“…irreverent sense of humor.”
