Can strangers be trusted?
To Accept a Wooden Nickel is a literary narrative of a young hitchhiker setting out to test an old fashioned (but now questionable) belief that people are good. Dwyer investigates society thru the lens of a young traveler with a 55-liter backpack and his acoustic bass guitar. One conversation at a time, the author documents his irregular patterns of life as a hitchhiker in 2015 as he travels from rural Colorado to the Deep South, attempting to prove that humanity still has something left to believe in.
"I thoroughly enjoyed learning the tricks and trials of this traveler with a positive attitude and the folks who encourage, or threaten, him along the way."
"Makes you think twice about going outside of your comfort zone ~ maybe it's not so bad after all."
"There is a 'sitting around the campfire swapping stories' feeling to it that makes it fun to read. Well worth reading."
"I was rendered useless until I finished it. It has everything a good novel needs: sacrifice, adventure, love, danger, and a journey of truth."
