by John H.D. Lucy

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
One man's cycling journey across the United States to fight human trafficking. Though the book is full of humorous and harrowing stories of the journey, like when John came face to face with death in the guise of a coyote, or maybe a hyena, the book is most powerful because of John's reflections on the personal and social causes of human trafficking/slavery in our world and in our country. Overall the book confronts the reader with the question: are you contributing to slavery in some way? Do our lifestyles unknowingly produce a society where slavery must exist? Does the way we think and feel cause a ripple effect ending in slavery? As John journeys across the country he asks all of us to journey deep within ourselves so that our very lives can encourage and embody a world free of slavery. The book contains all the information on human trafficking you will need to know, but John H.D. Lucy is no expert. His contribution to ending human trafficking rests in analyzing the life of an average person in relationship to the greatest evil humankind has ever known.
