An Illegal Hike Across The Heartland – Next on Life Elsewhere

Share

Ken Ilgunas says his new book is about coming to terms with climate change and figuring out what our role as individuals should be in confronting something so big and so out of our hands. It’s about taking a few months of your life to look at your country from a new perspective. Ultimately, it’s about embracing the belief that a life lived not half wild is a life only half lived. Trespassing Across America is also about Ken’s journey, fleeing from cows, taking cover from gunfire, and keeping warm on a very wintry and questionably-timed hike. In Trespassing Across America: One Man’s Epic Never-Done-Before (And Sort Of Illegal) Hike Across The Heartland, the spirited author recounts his story of his 1,70-mile journey on foot, following the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, from Alberta to the Texas Gulf Coast. It would become a 4.5-month hike across the Great Plains. To follow the pipe, Ken couldn’t take roads, instead, he had to walk across fields, grasslands, and private property. He had to trespass across America.
