Overview

Imagine giving up everything you own and walking across the country… for 28 years?
Meet Peace Pilgrim (1908-1981), who traveled the U.S. on foot seven times with only the clothes on her back and no money to spread her message of peace. She lived off the land and the kindness of those she met, sleeping outdoors, on cement floors, in parked cars and, once, on the front seat of a fire engine in Tombstone, Arizona. Whenever she ran into trouble – physical or verbal – her sole response was love. This joyful New Jersey native touched tens of thousands of lives, one step at a time. Never heard of her? Read the book and you’ll never forget her!
This biographical novel includes photos, glossary & reader's guide, and fits historical fiction, anti-bullying & women's history themes. Aimed at middle grades and up, it's inspiring for all ages.
