This is the story of a fascinating trek to Concord, Massachusetts taken by the author and his two friends. They have many adventures and meet some interesting characters in this light-hearted, but thoughtful epic. The walkers talk as they cover some fifteen miles. They avoid major roads, keeping to fields, forests, and backyards. Mitchell engages in a wide-ranging discussion as he recounts the personal stories of colorful local residents and delves into literature, art and music along the way. John Hanson Mitchell is an award-winning author. He was the editor of Mass Audubon's Sanctuary magazine, Paperback.
