Overview

After purchasing his first motorcycle—a Harley-Davidson—in 2004, John Gussenhoven almost immediately planned an epic cross-country road trip, the kind that many dream about but few actually make. Crisscrossing America is a photographic journal of his two-year, two-leg journey crisscrossing the United States—from Mt. Vernon, Washington, to Naples, Florida, and from San Diego, California, to Eastport, Maine. In this truly unique celebration of the United States, breathtaking aerial photographs by Jim Wark accompany the many ground-level photographs of small towns, roadside oddities, and beautiful scenery taken by Gussenhoven as he discovered America one mile at a time.
