it was amazing
Read in June, 2009

I have to admit that this book touched me because I read it at the right time in my life. This book is a travel journal that Don keeps while driving from Houston to Oregon. I read it while traveling from Texas to Utah. It reminded me of "travels with Charlie". Don has a very understated style. Starting with his descriptions of the sights, sounds and smells of suburban Houston, to West Texas, to the desert southwest, ..... he used geography as a surreal backdrop for his wandering heart. I happen to be enamored by the desert southwest and his honest heart. The book combines the two.
