The bear went over the mountain : finding America, finding myself

Image of item
After reaching age 50, author and publisher Carll Tucker knew he needed to make some changes. To figure out his new life, he took to the American road alone in an RV for nine months. His plan was to locate all the graves of our presidents and vice presidents and find his own new self and direction. Join Tucker as he uncovers fascinating new information about famous and forgotten leaders. Who knew that one of our vice presidents was an American Indian or that another was believed to be African-American? Why were we never taught that a president and vice president were gay? From Wal-Mart to Disneyworld to Mount Rushmore to the Grand Ole Opry to RV parks, Tucker experiences an America both familiar and unexpected and revels in a treasure trove of intriguing information. At the same time, he achieves his goal of self discovery, which has enabled him to make meaningful changes and set him on a new road for his own future. Hilarious, poignant, and provocative, this is history as joyride, and a provocative personal journey that will resonate with travel aficionados as well as those who want to make positive, though difficult, changes in their lives.
