Summary: Tony Petracca, a native of Philadelphia, is a Catholic priest active in Western Pennsylvania. Since his parents and siblings all moved to the West Coast in the 1980s, he has undertaken over three dozen cross-country drives to visit them, experiencing over that time an incredible chunk of the intervening continent in its various aspects. This volume offers both a taste of his travel experiences, and specific recommendations for others to plan and begin their own such adventures, so that they too might discover the same length of road destinations, the same breadth of beauty, and the same depth of history, that he has. While his guardian angel has needed to work overtime on some of these excursions, he has always enjoyed a strong sense of the Lord's providential presence on these treks, so that travel on US interstates, wherever else he is heading, has always brought him closer to God. It is his hope that others will not only read and enjoy this book, but will allow it to launch them onto America's highways and byways, so that they too might not only hear the Creator talking to them through vastness and majesty, but also come to appreciate the many treasures that our nation has to offer.
