Walking Across America: Advice for a Young Man

Andrew Forsthoefel set out at age 23 to walk across America, East to West, 4000 miles, with a sign on him that said, “Walking to Listen.” This hour, co-produced with Jay Allison, tracks his epic journey. It’s a coming of age story, and a portrait of this country — big-hearted, wild, innocent, and wise.

Outdoor Explorer returns next week.
