A natural storyteller and former comedy writer, Bill enchants audiences with a medium of different sort in “Driving Across America.” In contrast to his new book, Bill most frequently tells the tale of life on the road on his daily radio report “Rediscover America,” his award-winning podcast “Bill on the Road” and his website billontheroad.com.
Long before it became a trend, Bill has been highlighting the positives in the U.S. for nearly 20 years. “Driving Across America” – and most of Bill’s collection of works – is a reminder of our shared humanity and the good in people and places in big cities and small towns alike.
Readers will enjoy hilarious and heartfelt stories that include a Mississippian’s homemade, bowling-ball-shooting cannon; some rather strange museums; a lot of giant, record-setting possessions; and the connectivity and kindness engendered by natural disasters.
“I hope “Driving Across America” captures the joys, struggles and realities we all experience as well as fosters an appreciation for the uniqueness of the places in these great United States,” said Bill. “Some stories are hilarious; some are more somber, but all are true. May this book inspire folks to head for the open road and explore the true wonders of America the Beautiful.”
