"The American Dream need not forever be deferred." - JFK
What is success? Is it money, or a prestigious job title, or a house and car? In this personal exploration of the American Dream, Gaylan Wright discusses his path to personal fulfillment during an eventful eighteen years with the Wyoming Highway Patrol. From routine traffic stops to unthinkable tragedy, the highway patrol sees the best and worst of human nature. Wright examines the training process, the brotherhood of service, and the ups and downs of working as a state trooper. With candor, thoughtfulness, and humor, Wright illuminates the daily life of the thin blue line and provides insights about personal character, racial injustices, and the ways people can contribute to making the world a better place.
