I loved this book because it was about a man overcoming a terrible time in his life and opening up and coming out of his norm to experience and explore life in a new way. I loved how he explored the country and traveled and took a chance at meeting new people. How he hitchhiked around the country with almost no money. The era in time when he did it: no phones, no computers, and pretty much no worries back in the ’50s. For me, when I get out of prison, I would love to roam and see the country. Go places I’ve never gone, meet all the people I would meet, and live life free and out on the road with no worries or rules from normal society. I want to sleep out in the world again and no longer in a concrete box. When I read this book, I can see every word he says as clear as day, as if I lived it myself.
