Conversations with US, an intimate look at Americans
I have to admit that only about 10% of the hundreds of books I read each year are non-fiction, so when my advance copy of “Conversations with US – American Southwest” arrived, I was dubious that it would grab my attention. I was wrong.
This is a book that gives up-close-and-personal looks at the lives, thoughts and opinions of a diverse collection of individuals who live in the American Southwest. The interviews, conducted by author, Chris Regis

This book was definitely an enjoyable read and I admire anyone who executes this kind of undertaking--a very long bike trip in some pretty harsh conditions with a goal of interviewing a lot of people along the way.

Fascinating tour through the American southwest talking to people about what's on their minds concerning the condition of the country and what they are most concerned about.

Chris Register is an explorer at heart. His life's journey has taken him through a thousand villages, towns, cities, rural communities, and wild places spread across several continents. He served in the Peace Corps, graduated Georgetown Law, and litigated cases in U.S. district court before cycling some 16,000 miles across the United States to connect with hundreds of everyday Americans from all 5 ...more
