A reader's trifecta: a humorous travelogue, a stirring adventure tale, and a touching family story.--Bart King, author of The Big Book of Boy Stuff

For a four-thousand-mile bicycle ride across America, Joe's seven-year-old son Quinn rides a tagalong bike attached to his dad's, and behind that is five-year-old Enzo in a bike trailer. Our hero the Metal Cowboy answers the question What are you, crazy? with a resounding Yes.

With no support crew except his boys' comic relief and the kindness of strangers, he pedals hundreds of pounds of gear and offspring over mountain passes, through thunderstorms, and into the heart of what it means to be a dad.
