Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0806134887, Hardcover)

"A skeptical Canadian's odyssey and modern-day search for the American Dream while walking the famous Mormon Trail. Chisholm's solo journey from the Missouri River to Salt Lake City is both a revealing and tongue-in-cheek account of the Mormon pioneers as well as a contemporary and compelling narrative of the American dreamers he came across on his 1100 mile walk. Hard-edged, sardonic and at times brutally revealing in his writing, Chisholm contrasts the failed dreams of "community" with the dream of "individuality" that dominates today's mythic West - reminiscent of John Steinbeck and William Least Heat-Moon but penned with the irreverence of Edward Abbey."
