Tyler Coulson walked across America in 2011. Just recently, he published a book about his adventures.
I bought the e-book, and I have to say I was NOT disappointed. Tyler weaves together three different narratives seamlessly: the walk itself, the events leading up to the walk, and after he finished. Getting into his head space was fascinating.
Tyler is a badass! On the trip, which took less than one year, he suffered a broken finger and a closed black eye practically out of the gate, and as his trip progressed a sprained/possibly broken ankle, lacerated feet, rattlesnakes, a pissed off bear, dog attacks, nasty storms, horrid heat, and more character building events than most people live through in a lifetime.
Go buy the book. Seriously. It makes me want to walk the continent more than ever. I’m inspired and more than a little intimidated. Which makes me want to do it even more, lol.

Oh, and one last thing–10% sales of his book until Dec. 31 will go to no-kill animal shelters! So when you buy your copy, you’ll be helping out our four-legged friends!
