Retired climate scientist David Goodrich biked diverse trails that reflect the history of the United States. He weaves stories about these trails with his personal experience to highlight the growing emergency of climate change. Pondering western movement into the frontier, the paths slaves followed in search of freedom and remembrances of the genocide of Native Americans, Goodrich goes beyond theory and paints vivid portraits of places and people. He discusses how rising seas, tornadoes, drought, wildfires and diminishing species affect them. Goodrich’s inspiring, picaresque tale will intrigue the climate curious, and fans of a good road trip.
