The People's Road Revistedby Wade Kearley
The People’s Road recounts the story of the author’s experience during the summer of 1993 as he hiked the 900 km derelict Newfoundland railway. The real story of the adventure is the people Kearley meets along the way as he walks along the thing communities of the abandoned track. It is these exchanges captured against a backdrop of inspirational beauty punctuated by the despairing examples of man’s disregard for the environment that show the true value of Kearley’s quest.
