First off let me say my son knows Michael, and I met him a few times. When I heard they were walking to New York, I though wow what a challenge. As I began reading I had no idea how difficult it was going to be and the challenges they met along the way. The night I downloaded the book, I started reading, it was well after 3 am when I forced myself to stop. So for the next three/four nights I read, and loved the determination of all three of the men and not giving up when they could have right in the beginning. Well guys, I am waiting for a heart transplant, and will think of how to not let anything take over what your end result will be. Mine is a heart and I am walking towards that goal every day. (Mike will know when I reach my New York)!! I do hope I see movie in the future for this book. Inspirational!!

I met these guys when on vacation in the Black Hills. I was 48 years old and a college student, on vacation with my wife, stepson and his wife. I had not told anyone, but I was seriously considering dropping school. Only halfway through and the burden was more than I wanted to tolerate. We met Mike first, he quickly changed my perspecting. We talked, he told us about the trip and their successes, a few struggles. We shot hoops, played hacky sack and then started talking magic. I know exactly one good trick that I can do well. Mike and Edward saw it first, they got me to do it on camera with Bulla. They performed for us, then told me what I needed to do to be more entertaining with it. I did graduate, 3.8 GPA Magna Cum Laude. This book is a reminder of who I talked to and lessons I learned that night. I was sad when I read about police escorting them out of town and how much of the journey was lost. I am saddened also that this did not get picked up by PBS or Discovery. It is a once and a lifetime experience and I am greatful I got to see a small part of it. Mike, you may have changed my life, I hope this book moves others as it has moved me.

Well I certainly can't pick up and walk across the U.S.A, but I can live vicariously through Edwin Bond as he does. What a cool & unique experience that must have been. Such an inspiring and enjoyable read!
