The Longest Road

(2013)
Overland in Search of America, from Key West to Deadhorse
A non fiction book by

 
IN THE LONGEST ROAD, ONE OF AMERICA'S MOST RESPECTED WRITERS TAKES AN EPIC JOURNEY ACROSS THE NATION, AIRSTREAM IN TOW, AND ASKS EVERYDAY AMERICANS WHAT UNITES AND DIVIDES A COUNTRY AS DIVERSE AS IT IS VAST.

Standing on a wind-scoured island off the Alaskan coast, Philip Caputo marveled that its Inupiat Eskimo schoolchildren pledge allegiance to the same flag as the children of Cuban immigrants in Key West, six thousand miles away. And a question began to take shape: How does the United States, peopled by every race on earth, remain united? Caputo resolved that one day he'd drive from the nation's southernmost point to the northernmost point reachable by road, talking to Americans about their lives and asking how they would answer his question.

Caputo, his wife, and their two English setters made their way in a truck and classic trailer (hereafter known as "Fred" and "Ethel") from Key West, Florida, to Deadhorse, Alaska, covering sixteen thousand miles. He spoke to everyone from a West Virginia couple saving souls to a Native American shaman and taco entrepreneur. What he found is a story that will entertain and inspire readers as much as it informs them about the state of today's United States, the glue that holds us all together, and the conflicts that could pull us apart.
