    Dry humor accentuates this book.

    One Mile at a Time is a great read from beginning to end. Tragedies lead Smith to cycle around the U.S. literally. His trip gives him a unique perspective to life which he passes on to his readers in a superb fashion with sprinklings of humor here and there. This book inspires readers to get their bicycles out of the dusty corner of the basement or garage and set off down the road at least for a mile or two. Lynnita Mattock, author of Abductee
