Have you ever dreamed of leaving everything behind and taking off to see the world?After completing an eight-thousand-mile walking trek from Pennsylvania, through Oregon, and on to Arkansas in his twenties, Bud Kenny wanted nothing more than to do it all again—but this time with his wife. The only problem was he couldn’t find a woman who wanted to hike across America with him…until he met and married Patricia.Footloose in America follows the fifty-something newlyweds as they leave their home in Arkansas and start walking toward Maine. All they bring with them is their mule, Della, who pulls an electricity-generating wagon that converts into a stage upon which Bud performs his poetry.A tale of true love and extraordinary adventure, this unique travel memoir reveals a one-of-a-kind view of American culture. From the Amish people’s perspective on what our excessively high-tech society overlooks to immigration issues as seen from a migrant worker’s vantage point, the Kennys stumble across a colorful cast of characters throughout their incredible journey.More than simply inviting you to read about their unforgettable experiences, the Kennys’ story will inspire you to pursue your own dreams—and discover the adventure that waits for you.**
