    This was quite a story a 50 something British grandmother decides to go on her own adventure, bicycling across the U.S in the 1970s She does exactly that from the moment she gets off the plane in Virginia Dulles , she immediately gets on Daisy , the fold away bike that she checked with her minimal luggage Wanting to start at the Atlantic Ocean, she starts riding East hard to imagine on today s traffic clogged roads and ends up on her first night in Jamestown From there we are treated This was quite a story a 50 something British grandmother decides to go on her own adventure, bicycling across the U.S in the 1970s She does exactly that from the moment she gets off the plane in Virginia Dulles , she immediately gets on Daisy , the fold away bike that she checked with her minimal luggage Wanting to start at the Atlantic Ocean, she starts riding East hard to imagine on today s traffic clogged roads and ends up on her first night in Jamestown From there we are treated to her impressions of the landscape and the stories of the people she meets Continually surprised by the openness and friendly hospitality of us Americans, she finds herself invited in to share meals or to enjoy a real bed when she knocks on doors asking to pitch her tent on people s land, for example She does camp out plenty, though, and ends up catching rides when the going gets tough i.e when it s snowing in the Rockies For the most part she seems unconcerned for her safety, which makes me wonder how different a trip like this would be today, if it were still possible Miller s observations of our country are very entertaining, and I found it particularly interesting that she had none of the locals baggage about race and class For example, she stops at the home of an African American family in Virginia asking to pitch her tent, and it takes her a while to realize how amazed they are at her presence and the fact that she stopped at their house That kind of stranger in a strange land perspective add another layer of interest to what is already a page turning adventure story

    The idea of taking a whimsical bike ride across the country is inspiring, but nothing else in this book was worth the paper it was printed on She gives extensive detail on some things and absolutely no detail on other places she visits A lot of facts I could discern were wrong which made me question everything else she wrote The chronology and geography were obviously incorrect at times The book never even mentions how long it took her to complete her vacation.
