Round America with a Duck: via bike, buses, trains and working on organic farms

Pattie Baker

A 1960s-child about to turn 60 travels solo* 10,000 miles/16,100 kilometers via bike, buses, trains and WWOOFing (working on organic farms) in search of hope in a country-at-a-crossroads and world-in-crisis during the hottest year on Earth. What she finds out about the country - and herself- could change both of their futures. And maybe even yours.

Fast-paced, funny and philosophical - including a repurposed tobacco farm in North Carolina; an eco-spirituality alpaca ranch run by the Dominican Sisters of Peace in America's heartland; a homestead in Boulder, Colorado; a Krishna Temple with the largest llama rental herd in Utah; a lavender farm (and yet more llamas!) in the High Desert of California; and face-to-face with every climate threat you can imagine - Round America with a Duck is the Eat Pray Quack story you didn't know you've been craving. It's the right journey at the right time, shared with wit, dignity and joy - needed now more than ever.

*well, with a duck
