God's Country takes a hilarious and irreverent swipe at religious dogma in America. Part Jack Kerouac part Sherman Alexie, it is a hilarious and irreverent novel. Two friends take a less-than-ordinary road trip through the American West. On their journey, they repeatedly encounter a religious couple who are on a pilgrimage to find God. Much to the exasperation of the protagonists, the couple continually finds tangible evidence of their devout faith in the most unlikely places. Despite the novel's humorous approach, though, there is an underlying poignant message. Without the central characters recognizing it, their own trip becomes something much deeper - a true spiritual awakening. Their journey brings them new insights about their philosophical and spiritual convictions, the meaning of friendship, and the impact that dogma has on our beliefs, our culture, and our environment.
