Product description

Review

Such a fabulous book, I haven't read anything like it in a long time. Egenes writes a strong crisp account of his trek across America on the back of his beloved horse, Gizmo. The story of how John and Gizmo grow up along the trip, and the depth of the relationship that John has with Gizmo, is the beating heart of the book. Along the way, their adventures and encounters run from abandoned desert windmills to hot city pavement, from friendly farmers to crooked politicians, giving a series of snapshots of life in a vanished America. Utterly recommended! --Amazon.com

What a genuine piece of writing! And what a pleasure to read a work that wasn't pretentious or self-aggrandizing, but that was, in fact, just the opposite. An authentic piece of Americana from a period that doesn't seem that long ago to someone my age, but in many ways, now seems to be light years away from what this country is like now. Everyone needs to read this book. It is a modern classic. Many thanks to John and Gizmo. --Amazon.com

I wasn't sure what I was getting into when I started the book - but I was soon caught up in the story. Having grown up in the 60's, the story of travelling across the US in the 70's brought back many memories. The prose is clear, the story entertaining, and I fell in love with Gizmo (sorry, John, lol) right away. This is a fascinating tale about a man's voyage across the country, but it's also a story of growing up a loner and trying to fit into a fast-changing world. Full of interesting characters and beautiful descriptions of storms, deserts, and mountains - the story took me on a journey that I won't easily forget. --Goodreads.com
