Jake Does America – 10,000 Miles in 10 Minutes

Book description on Amazon:

“A chronicle about an Army veteran who becomes homeless, and follows his dream of hiking and cycling all over North America. Although he is homeless, he gets by with his survival skills and the help of strangers as he raises money for various charities and support groups. His altruistic trek spans over the course of three years and comes to an abrupt stop at his 10,000th mile. From Delaware to California, from Florida to Alaska, follow along to experience this man’s journey of compassion, chaos, supernatural events, deadly situations, loneliness, comic relief, selflessness, betrayal, heartbreak, and humbleness. You will never read a travel story quite like this one!”

This book review from Amazon by Katrina Rachel describes the book well:

“A travelogue written by a U.S. Army veteran struggling with PTSD and bipolar disorder. Finding himself unemployed and homeless, Jake sells all his possessions and decides he will walk across America while raising money for various charities, including St. Jude’s Hospital. Uncomfortable in busy, densely populated areas Jake tries to stick to backroads and small towns. Along the way, he copes with being mistaken for a homeless vagrant, a potential troublemaker, is harassed by police and people who judge only the book’s cover and never look inside. These experiences are balanced with many encounters with kind strangers, as well as followers of his blog who meet up with him, offer him food, drink, care packages, entertainment and respite from the fatigue of the long journey. Skilled in wood craft Jake camps, hunts, fishes and uses his Army training to be as self-sufficient as possible. Even during his darkest days of depression, as he contemplates suicide, his honesty and integrity shine through, and you feel as though you are listening to a dear friend unburdening their heart to you. A remarkable book, by a remarkable man, who has travelled 10,000 miles by bicycle and on foot, across America and is not yet 30 years old. I hope the coming years bring him the health, peace, and happiness he deserves.”
