THE LONGEST ROAD Overland in Search of America, From Key West to the Arctic Ocean

by | Read by Pete Larkin

Biography & Memoir • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

In 2012, author Philip Caputo hitched an Airstream to his truck and set off to discover what exactly holds America together, especially during these times of political polarization. Narrator Pete Larkin's casual, personal sound is perfect for this captivating account of the ultimate road trip, covering 16,000 miles from the southernmost tip of Key West to the northern shore of Alaska. Larkin embraces the story, animating each experience with the appropriate emotion, such as the author’s frustration with his trailer's plumbing and his awe at seeing wild buffalo. Larkin’s ease with a variety of regional accents helps listeners visualize the people Caputo talked with along the way. Armchair travelers AND wanderers will be fascinated by this travel memoir.
