The Kindness of Strangers: Penniless Across America by Mike McIntyre

indie ebook cover


What would you do if you had to journey penniless across America, depending only on the kindness of those you met along the way?

If you're Mike McIntyre, you might meet...A biker-turned-minister who shares faith, food, and self-defense tips with a stranger on the road...A lady firefighter who used to be a man...A lonely woman who offers a place to spend the night, and in the morning feels the loss of yet another man who leaves her...

Stuck in a job he no longer found fulfilling, journalist Mike McIntyre felt his life was quickly passing him by. So one day he hit the road to trek from one end of the country to the other with little more than the clothes on his back and without a single penny in his pocket. Through his travels, he found varying degrees of kindness in strangers from all walks of life
