With $250 in his pocket, a bicycle, and a pack weighing thirty-seven pounds, Edward Abair set off for the adventure of a lifetime in 1972. Twenty-seven years old, this teacher and former Army medic bicycled 5,800 miles alone from Long Beach, California, to Miami, Florida, to Boston Massachusetts. Forty years later, he kept a promise to travel the northern United States. This time he used modern equipment and had a wife supporting him in an automobile. With age and experience, he shares observations of finding the people and adventures from small town America to the Great St. Louis Gateway Arch.
