Stories of the Road

1976. The Bicentennial Summer.

Two friends. A bicycle ride across America.

Extraordinarily beautiful country -- the Pacific Northwest, Yellowstone, the Black Hills, Great Plains, and Great Lakes Region. Native American, pioneer, and ecological accounts.

Good adventures, all kinds of stories, and a few ghosts.

As much fun as the Fourth of July!


Excerpt

The evergreens crowded the sides of the road. Under the gray skies, the narrow, winding corridor through the trees was dark, misty, and fragrant. Logging trucks loaded with cut timbers passed Tom and Kara at high speeds, spilling scraps of bark and woodchips and kicking up gritty road spray. The big trucks created a vacuum when they passed, sucking their bicycles off the shoulder, onto the road, and in towards the truck and then, as the truck continued on down the road, spitting them back out again towards the shoulder. Long after they passed, the air retained the pungent odor of freshly sawed wood. Tom and Kara marveled at the size of the logs. Viewed from behind, some of the logs had diameters that were truly astonishing. They had heard of terrible accidents involving logging trucks, where the trucks spilled all their big logs across the road. "I wouldn't want to be around when that happens," Kara said one time, when they had pulled over and watched the trucks go by.
