Notes

Description
Guthrie Wagner, a bartender in Roseburg, Oregon., hears a voice urging him to take a walk. The idea is so appealing that he quits his job, sells his car, and begins a trek toward the East though he has no specific destination. Along the way, Guthrie realizes he is almost starting life anew. He discovers that he has lost the urge to smoke, can walk miles effortlessly and is never cold when he sleeps outdoors. Guthrie's walk begins to appeal to others like Jody Ledbetter, a trucker who finds he has healing powers, and psychologist Sara Duskin, a blind visionary, and her son, Thom. Block intersperses the narrative with vignettes focusing on real estate investor Mark Adlon's obsesson with killing women. Of course Adlon is destined to join the walk and Sara eventually explains to Guthrie the reason for their journey.- from Publiser's Weekly/Amazon.
