Getting to the Point. In a dozen pairs of shoes is the story of the first modern-day trail run across America.
Running alone and wearing only a 10-pound pack, ultra runner Brian Stark often had to rely on the kindness of strangers, and hope for mercy from the elements. Over the course of his 8-month trek across America, Brian learned first hand what this country is really like, the diversity of its people and their experiences. This is more than just a book about running, it’s a book about people.
If you liked Forrest Gump or A Walk Across America, or if you just like a rousing good story complete with daily wrong turns, surprising rescues by strangers, a blossoming romance, and a Hollywood ending, this book is a must read.
