An inquiry into living while walking the roads of America, Mexico, and beyond.
A few years ago, Jeffrey Sawyer quit his job, sold all his possessions, and set out walking from Asheville, North Carolina. He had no destination in mind and no goal except to inquire into the meaning of life, love, and freedom. After traveling as far as Minnesota, he returned to where he started. Since then he has taken many such journeys, not only in the continental U.S. but in Mexico, Hawaii, and Southeast Asia. Everywhere he goes, he carries little or no money and does most of his traveling on foot. The following excerpts are from a completed manuscript about his experiences on the road. A select number of printed versions remain available for free, or if inclined, on donation, upon request. (Update--November 2007--: the book, _An Inquiry Into Living_, will be available soon.)
