Having traveled by automobile much of the route taken by Phil and Merj Shrout on their bicycle trip across America, we were amazed at how much we had missed as to the `real¿ people of the United States. The numerous stories and colorful characters painted in ¿America at Twelve Miles an Hour¿ by the author really bring their trip to life for all readers, whether well traveled or not. If not, we can only imagine that reading this book will spur many to giving serious consideration to embarking on such a trip themselves. We highly recommend this book to all, particularly those who enjoy living vicariously, which is easily attained given Phil¿s highly entertaining writing style, or those who are serious or aspiring bicyclists. No, doubt, though, that this book can serve as a tremendous guide book for anyone interested in traveling their scenic and interesting route, whether by bicycle, motorcycle, automobile or RV.Was this review helpful?
