Description
1954: Annie Wilkins, a sixty-three-year-old farmer from Maine, had no relatives, lost her family farm to back taxes, and her doctor had just given her two years to live. She decided she wanted to see the Pacific Ocean just once before she died. Buying a cast-off brown gelding she donned men's dungarees, loaded up her horse, and headed out from Maine in mid-November, hoping to beat the snow. She had no map, no GPS, no phone, just an unfailing belief that Americans would treat a stranger with kindness. For two years Annie, her horse Tarzan, and her dog, Depeche Toi, journeyed more than 4,000 miles, through America's big cities and small towns, meeting ordinary people and celebrities, trudging through blizzards, and fording rivers. Letts describes how Wilkins captured the imagination of an apprehensive Cold War America. -- adapted from publisher info
