In this completely revised edition, Don Miller records his trip with wide-eyed honesty in achingly beautiful prose, discussing everything from the nature of friendship, the reason for pain, and the origins of beauty. As Don and Paul 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A record of a classic road trip. Miller’s tale is full of serendipitous adventures and thoughtful Christian reflection…offering the sort of deep-thought wanderings into meaning and significance that are the meat of college-age existence…a reminder that life was meant to be lived, not just gotten through.”
