Fueled by the belief that something better exists than the mundane life they've been living, free spirits Don and Paul set off on an adventure-filled road trip in search of deeper meaning, beauty, and an explanation for life.

Many young men dream of such a trip, but few are brave enough to actually attempt it. Fewer still have the writing skills of Donald Miller, who records the trip with wide-eyed honesty in achingly beautiful prose. In this completely revised edition, he discusses everything from the nature of friendship, the reason for pain, and the origins of beauty. As they travel from Texas to Oregon in Paul's cantankerous Volkswagen van, the two friends encounter a variety of fascinating people, witness the fullness of nature's splendor, and learn unexpected lessons about themselves, each other, and even God.

    " This is a travel journal. Do not expect it to be a spirituality discussion like Jazz or God Knows. Yes, there is =some= spiritual discussion in this one too, it's just not the meat of the book. If you come to it with the right expectations it can be an enjoyable read. "

    " I love everything Donal Miller writes. If I wasn't so opposed to marriage, I would go to a justice of the peace with his autograph. That's how much I love everything he writes. "
