Editorial Reviews

Review

Past Praise for Geoff Williams:

“Williams meticulously and brilliantly captures the roughly 2,000-mile journey and the larger-than-life characters. The result is a fine, unlikely, and intimate journey into the American past, across the deserts, mountains and plains with heroes bearing wild aspirations long since gone.” —The Washington Post

“Williams has evocatively recreated a long-forgotten event, mixing colorful anecdotes from the race with vivid portraits of the runners.” —Publishers Weekly

“Williams recounts the story with gusto, giving us a real sense of the physical and mental toll. The book is like a time capsule—and an extremely entertaining one at that.” —Booklist

About the Author

Geoff Williams is a longtime newspaper and magazine journalist, and the author of C. C. Pyle’s Amazing Foot Race: The True Story of the 1928 Coast-to-Coast Run Across America (Rodale, 2007). His writing has appeared in National Geographic World, Life, the Cincinnati Post, and much more. He has appeared on CNN and NPR’s Talk of the Nation. For most of his life, Williams has lived less than an hour away from the Great Flood’s epicenter in Dayton, Ohio.
