A Walk Across America
by Peter Jenkins
"Stop right there, son. You aint goin' nowhere in this blizzard."
Peter started his walk across America in October in New York state. He runs into a lot of winter, especially in the Appalachians. And he runs into a lot of nice people who will do things like this man did: insist that Peter and his dog Cooper come home with him and have a good home-cooked meal.
