Publisher's Summary

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.

    "I almost didnt buy this book- SO GLAD I DID!!!"

    Because of the negative comments of the narrator I almost didn't purchase this book. I did because I really enjoy Donald Miller's writing.
    I loved this book! I did not notice anything wrong with the narrator, because the story was that good!!
    I highly recommend this book to anyone who longs for an adventure, and too afraid to begin one.
    Awesome book!

    "Inspiring!"

    This book will make you want to jump on the open road and just drive. It is very inspiring to listen to the 2 main characters make rash decisions and have very little worry in the worry some world.

    Great listen for a road trip!
