Overview
If your office building were on fire, would you lock the door and keep working? If you were unhappy with your career, would you pedal a rental commuter bike cross-country to see what else was out there? What if a bloodthirsty axe murderer punched you in the face? Is that the city where you'd start a new business? Jeffrey Tanenhaus makes a lot of questionable decisions in pursuit of a fresh start, but they add up to one wild ride in this true story of the all-American adventure that has everyone talking—People, Newsweek, New York Post, The Guardian, Lonely Planet, NPR, and even The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Without any tools or experience, Tanenhaus sets out unprepared yet determined to find his American dream as he battles hostile elements, treacherous roads, and his own self-doubt, mile after mile. Ultimately, it's not the trek itself but the inspiring people he meets along the way who turn this funny, heartwarming exploration of small town life into one man's journey home.
