One heck of a journey....,
This review is from: America Unchained: A Freewheeling Roadtrip In Search of Non-Corporate USA (Paperback)
Dave Gorman attempts to drive from the West coast to the East coast of the USA by only using independent petrol stations, motels and other businesses. To make his task even more difficult, his car is a 36 year old Ford Torino.
The book is both well written and highly amusing. Gorman makes it feel like you are travelling on the journey with him, and you get to see a more old-fashioned America.
As you would expect, things don't go exactly as planned. This is not helped by Gorman's numerous diversions. I won't tell you if he actually manages to fulfill his quest, but it was very enjoyable finding out all the same....
