Why read it?

1 author picked A Walk Across America as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

Peter set out during the Vietnam War era to walk all the way across the United States with only a camera, a backpack, and a dog. His books, which I read as a teenager, brought fascinating strangers into my world and taught me how much those strangers can change our lives. Thanks to Peter's writing, I've always felt safe talking to strangers, and I seek them out to find out who they are and what their lives are like. 

From Margaret's list on getting you talking to strangers.
