Imagine giving up everything you own and walking across the country...for 28 years? Meet Peace Pilgrim, who crossed the U.S. on foot seven times with only the clothes on her back to spread her message of peace. From 1953 to 1981, she lived off the land and the kindness of those she met. Whenever trouble came her way - whether blizzards or black eyes - her sole response was love. At a time when most women stayed home to cook, clean, and raise children, this joyful New Jersey native touched tens of thousands of lives, one step at a time.
Never heard of her? Listen to her story, and you'll never forget her. This biographical novel fits historical fiction, anti-bullying, and women's history themes. Aimed at middle grades and up, it's inspiring for all ages.
