Woodrow Landfair's Ride Across America

Woodrow Landfair, 24 year old author, sold everything he owned to pursue his dream: to find stories of the real America by riding across the lower 48 states:

To support himself --and to gather material--Landfair does manual labor and odd jobs. He's worked as a room service bell hop, a door-to-door salesman, a babysitter, a bartender, a waiter, and a food-runner. He's built a fence in Florida, been a bouncer in New York City, changed oil in Virginia, and lifeguarded in Washington, D.C.

Landfair has lived in homeless shelters in New York City. He has stayed as a volunteer in the Katrina ravaged Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans. He's slept and dined in the mansions of millionaires, in trailer parks, in truck stops, and in roadside fields.

His journey through the 48 states is part of a curriculum in self-education. Landfair is learning as a writer, as an artist, as an American, and as a human.
