About the book:
In 1974 John Egenes saddled his young horse, Gizmo and set out to do the impossible. Together, the pair started down the trail on an adventure across the North American continent. Their seven month journey took them across the United States, from California to Virginia, ocean to ocean. Full of heart and humor, Egenes serves up a tale that’s as big as the America he witnessed. Ride along with them as they travel across an America that no longer exists, on a journey that could only be experienced step by step, mile by mile, with a view from between a horse’s ears.
“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… Everyone needs to read this book. It is a modern classic.” —Amazon review
