Grief and loss are not the end of the road. Gifts found along life's way can make it abundantly worth living, as this couple discovered on the ultimate road trip. They lived the secret dream of countless American couples; a year on the road-with no timetable-that took them more than 30,000 miles into the far-flung corners of the nation. Along the way they came face-to-face with personal grief but also with the warmth and humanity of America and its people. A grandson of Russian immigrants and award-winning journalist celebrates America in a wonderful, upbeat story chock-full of Americana. It will tell you things about your country you probably didn't know. In Search of America's Heartbeat will appeal both to real travelers and to those whose journeys are mostly vicarious.
