Carol Cruise has such courage, trust and faith in God that it is hard to comprehend. As she takes you along on the journey you can see her faith building. To do such a walk with little resources, only one leg and middle-aged would be nigh impossible. God can be seen working in each and every step Ms.Cruise took. He is also seen through all the people who helped her accomplish this amazing trek. A truly inspiring story of a remarkable woman on a journey of faith.

To put Carol Cruise's cicumnavigaion of the continental U.S. on foot in perspective, I would like to compare it to Lewis and Clark's Corps of Discovery. Clark's estimate by dead reckoning of the distance one-way from the mouth of the Missouri to the mouth of the Columbia was 4142 miles; Carol walked 10,467 miles from South Beach, Miami, and back again, counterclockwise about the perimeter of the U.S. The Corps of Discovery took over 2-1/2 years traveling mostly by boat along waterways and horseback over mountain passes; Carol covered the route entirely by foot in 9 years, and not a few protheses. The Corps of Discovery was sponsored by President Jefferson and the resources of the federal government; Carol's only constant sponsor was her Lord and our resources in Christ Jesus. Lewis and Clark were helped by a variety of friendly Indian tribes at crucial points for their survival; Carol and her companions were helped at crucial points by a variety of friendly members of the Body of Christ . The Corps of Discovery consisted of as many as 34 members, including a baby and Lewis' dog Seaman; Carol's company usually consisted of no more than 3 members, including a spotter and a dog, Walker T. Lewis and Clark handed out mint-made peace medals to Indian tribes, proclaiming the sovereignity of new Great Chief in the East over their lands; Carol placed homemade crosses at one mile intervals about the perimeter of the U.S., proclaiming the sovereignity of Jesus Christ over the interior. Lewis and Clark administered medical care to needy Indian tribes, according to their abilities; Carol and company ministered to the needy and supplied the homeless their requests according to God's Provision.Read more ›

Here is this woman, an amputee, who has walked around the entire outside of the USA!! Over 10,000 miles. Truly amazing, a monumental achievement by any standard. But a 50-something lady with a prosthetic leg?? Wow!

However this book does not engage this reader. It's more like a cross between a daily ledger and a social calendar ("I met so and so"). She rarely talks about the sights she must have seen: the awe, the majesty, to monotony. It's hollow. I never felt her growth (either as a person or Christian), her rapture, her joys, her triumphs, her frustrations.

I think she wold have done better giving the readers vivid snapshots and left the so-and-sos to her thank you section. I was tired just reading the book and I kept waiting for something wonderful to happen.

I think even fans of Christian Lit might feel there is something "missing" from an extraordinary journey!! I applaud her feat, it's truly amazing. But the book didn't "move" me and I felt as though it should have.
