A Walk Across America 

Disillusioned by society, Peter Jenkins sets out on foot for an epic adventure from coast to coast. With his dog by his side, he finds jobs along the way and meets interesting characters, including a self-proclaimed Appalachian hermit. Upon its publication in 1979, A Walk Across America was a New York Times bestseller. It was on its sixth edition within the first year.

Wind, Sand and Stars 

Combining a gripping account of air adventure and the spirit of a philosopher, it’s no wonder that Wind, Sand and Stars is one of the most popular books ever written about flight. It tells the story of Antoine de Saint-Exupery. A pioneer in commercial aviation, he was an airmail courier for Aeropostale. He often flew dangerous routes over the Andes and Pyrenees, and the book explores the “transcendent perception that arises when life is tested to the limits.”

Trawler: A Journey Through the North Atlantic

After surviving Borneo and the Congo, Redmond O’Hanlon journeys on the waters off the northern tip of Scotland. He joins a commercial fishing crew aboard the Norlantean. Redmond helps them fill the bottomless hull with their catch as a hurricane rages around them. Trawler: A Journey Through the North Atlantic is “rich in oceanography and uproarious humor.”
