"The Last American Hitch-Hiker" is Mark Kneeskern's newest release, available online http://www.americaneyeball.com/eye-hitch/the-book/ or at the Terlingua Trading Company. It's about Marks travels and the kindness he found on the road, an up-lifting saga "...of people giving with no expectation of anything in return but some worthwhile conversation." Dr Doug highly recommends this book!
