Fifteen states. Thirteen pairs of shoes. 3,400 miles.

Kent Treptow did what a lot of people dream of doing - quit his job, sold his car and started walking... across America. From the forests of New England to the deserts of the Southwest, through sprawling Rust Belt cities to the quiet places where the corn rustles at night and the sand blows across the road in ribbons, Home Is Where I Lay My Head Down is the story of how a naive search for truth and happiness turned into an epic adventure featuring calamitous thunderstorms, swerving big rigs, a bar fight and one angry pig, but more importantly, the incredible kindness and generosity of small-town America.
