Abstract:

"In the summer of 1863 Colonel Arthur Fremantle traveled through America at the height of the Civil War. Almost 140 years later, Tom Fremantle set off on the same journey. While Colonel Arthur rode on stagecoaches, steam trains, and Mississippi river skiffs, his less sensible descendant slogged the entire way on foot. Colonel Arthur flirted with saucy belles, Tom Fremantle kept company with a cantankerous eleven-year-old mule called Browny. Colonel Arthur set out at a time when America was ripping itself apart, while Tom Fremantle--who started his walk ten days before the September 11 attacks on New York--witnessed a country never more united. While on his journey Fremantle visits the last battlefield of the Civil War with a baby-faced Brownsville journalist, enjoys the Day of the Dead in Progresso, joins and parts ways with a drunkard, sleeps in a church, and buys a beer from Jerry Lee Lewis's sister."--Publisher description.
