Overview

The sun glistening off snow-capped mountain peaks, the tall spruce of the north swaying in a gentle breeze, salmon making their final swim, this is what welcomed John and his wife Teddi on a road trip to the uppermost points of North American. A son Pete supplied an item that motivated a documentation of such a journey; a simple blank journal.

John realized that dates and places were not what brought him here, but a lifetime of history and preparation. The journey goes backward in time as well as being in the present. On this road trip, he could take his children, grandchildren, sisters, brothers, and visitors on a venture back as each day presented new and amazing sites that only he and his wife could see. His present will become history, but his history created the present. The stories are real. The people are real. A cast of characters details the relationship.

Along the road, John understands that there is always something beyond that can’t be seen. Life’s ventures either harden or temper us. The latter gives one purpose and even an appreciation for where we are. John chose the latter.

About the Author

If you are looking for the author, John Williams, you won't find him in the office writing. He may be trekking a nearby hiking trail or floating in his canoe or kayak on one of the beautiful lakes that surround his Appalachian foothills home. If not there, jump on your bicycle and find a nearby trail, he may be wrapped around a tree somewhere and in need of your help. Teddi, his wife of 50 years, will tell you to take your time. Four children, all grown, made a break for it and put roots in different parts of our beautiful country. The seven grandkids don't know what he looks like. Go to the nearest locally owned coffee shop and just by chance he may be there. He will be the only one with a pencil and paper.
