This is the true story of Moore's month-long solo motorcycle trip from Silicon Valley, California, to Fort Worth, Texas. As with any adventure, things don't turn out quite as planned but it's a good read nonetheless, and perhaps made better for all the unexpected twists. This is different from most travel writing I've come across, in that Moore manages to be a tourist no matter where she goes. Her descriptions of all the Tinytowns and Nowheresvilles she encounters are as enchanting as if she were exploring Paris or Tokyo. Though there were parts where her seemingly limitless credulity got a little exasperating, it was refreshing to witness someone so enthusiastic about life and so unabashed in her wonder at the world around her. It was surprisingly inspiring and reminded me that the world is really only as mundane as you make it. It's been a long time since a book touched me in this way. It makes me want to go on a journey of my own.
