This book has been compared with Blue Highways, Desert Solitaire, and Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. It is a delightful account of Jane’s 1980s cross country trip and her many adventures as she and Bobo the car discover America as only Jane could do. In it, she unearths unlikely places and people, and learns how to be on her own for the first time in her life.
“Jane Wodening is truly a unique voice. . . so close to the land, the sun, the night, the animal life.”
“Why not respect everything? It makes the world enormous, magnificent and meaningful. Much more interesting than me against the world.”
