Turn Left at the Trojan Horse had me howling with laughter and nodding at the razor-sharp observation. --Tahir Shah, author of The Caliphs HouseGo away. Figure it out, she was saying. Dont come back until you do. She looked at the calendar.MoreTurn Left at the Trojan Horse had me howling with laughter and nodding at the razor-sharp observation. --Tahir Shah, author of The Caliphs HouseGo away.

Figure it out, she was saying. Dont come back until you do. She looked at the calendar. You have thirty-one days.With these words, like Helen of Troy launching a thousand ships across the Aegean, Brad Herzogs wife launched a Winnebago Aspect onto the open road.A modern-day Odysseus in Kerouac clothing, Brad Herzog plunges into a solo cross-country search for insight.

With middle age bearing down on him, he takes stock: How has he measured up to his own youthful aspirations? In contemporary America, what is a life well lived? What is a heroic life?From the foothills of Washingtons Mount Olympus, through the forgotten corners of America, and finally to his college reunion in Ithaca, New York, Brad shares his personal odyssey. Stopping in classically named towns, he meets everyday heroes, including a teacher in a one-room schoolhouse in Troy, Oregon-a modern-day hobo in Iliad, Montana-and a bomb-squad soldier in Sparta, Wisconsin. These encounters and Brads effortlessly infused musings make for an exciting, one-of-a-kind ride.A truly epic journey.--A.J.

Jacobs, author of The Year of Living BiblicallyAs we sit in Herzogs passenger seat, we cannot help but stare out the window and even see our own reflection in the glass.--Liz Robbins, author of A Race Like No OtherBrad Herzog lives on Californias Monterey Peninsula with his wife and their two sons. He has been described as a modern-day Steinbeck and a Picasso of the Winnebago, and Lonely Planet has ranked his travel memoirs among eight classics of the genre, along with books like Travels with Charley and On the Road.

As an award-winning freelance writer, he has chronicled some of the nations most unusual and intriguing subcultures, from nudists to North Pole explorers and from Pez collectors to pro mini golfers.
