It was once said, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” This humorous story is about traveling down that road. That road starts off as the Alaskan Highway in Fairbanks, Alaska, and winds up Highway 77 in Ponca City, Oklahoma. Four Harley Davidson motorcycles and a really large truck made the journey. It is not full of mystery or intrigue, but it is a cautionary tale of life- altering events when a person blurts out, “Yes, I’ll go!” You will see how the human body and mind can endure crimes against humanity and still have the will to survive. But you will also read about acts of kindness that will restore your faith in your fellow man.

Greg Palmer had the urge to sniff around death's edges but not get down to the bare bones, so to speak. He's your tour guide on the Trip of a Lifetime, a revealing, globe-trotting exploration of the fascinating ways people live with the knowledge that the phrase "life goes on" is somewhat inaccurate. From slasher films as positive death images and a lighthearted look at the ancient art of body snatching to religious, spiritual, and philosophical theories about what might come after Death, Palmer deftly links diverse individuals, cultures, beliefs, and practices worldwide to recognize the universal in all mortality. Based on the PBS series. Color photos.

Miles From Home The Journey Of A Lifetime

Miles From Home is a deeply personal story and a narrative of the American dream. Born to a devoted mother and severely alcoholic father, Phillip Lee Woods was sent as an 11 year old to live with a taciturn grandfather on a lonely farm in Indiana’s countryside. Doing backbreaking chores from daybreak to dark and walking a long, deserted road to catch the bus, Woods’ school years were marked by toil, embarrassment about his circumstances, and a yearning to reunite with his mother and sister. Living in an isolated farmhouse with no indoor plumbing, no phone, and little heat, Woods and his grandfather helped each other to survive. These challenging early experiences helped the young Woods become a determined, perseverant man. Woods started out as a postal clerk, and despite not having a college education, he went on to found his own successful insurance business, Woods & Grooms, Inc. Along the way, he married his favorite post office patron and had a family of his own. His climb to ultimate success was riddled with many failures, including near bankruptcies and unsuccessful forays into raising horses and running a flight school. But more than a story of the American dream – of a man who, like many, started with nothing and went on to achieve success and serve his community- this is a love story, not just between Woods and his wife of more than 50 years, but between Woods and America. At the age of 66, he decided to walk across the country from east to west, determined to see its roads again close up and meet its inhabitants in person. He wanted to see the country not as politicians and lobbyists were formulating it, but see it as a land of individuals who had their own values, their own opinions. In 2010, Woods again walked across the Unites States, from north to south, a testament to what a stout heart, a devoted wife, and a few good pairs of sneakers could accomplish. This is the tale of a long, winding journey. Readers of Woods’ story respond to the at times heartbreakingly honest narrative, to the tale of a life of struggle, triumphs, failures, and tragedies, but most of all they are inspired by the can-do spirit of a man who insists we all keep moving.
