Man & Horse: The Long Ride Across America
In 1974 John Egenes saddled his young horse, Gizmo and set out to do the impossible. Together, the pair started down the trail on an adventure across the North American continent. Their seven month journey took them across the United States, ocean to ocean, and through it all they witnessed an America that no longer exists. Full of heart and humor, Egenes serves up a tale that’s as big as the land they crossed. Ride along with them as they travel across 1974 America on a journey that could only be experienced step by step, mile by mile, with a view from between a horse’s ears.
