As featured on Oprah, The Kindness of Strangers is the story of one man’s continental leap of faith–and the country that caught him.

Stuck in a job he no longer found fulfilling, journalist Mike McIntyre felt his life was quickly passing him by. So one day he hit the road to trek from one end of the country to the other with little more than the clothes on his back and without a single penny in his pocket. Through his travels, he found varying degrees of kindness in strangers from all walks of life–and discovered more about people and values and life on the road in America than he’d ever thought possible. The gifts of food and shelter he received along the way were outweighed only by the touching gifts of the heart–the willingness of many he met to welcome a lonely stranger into their homes…and the discovery that sometimes those who give the most are the ones with the least to spare.

Includes an extended sample from the author’s second travelogue, The Wander Year: One Couple’s Journey Around the World.

    I downloaded this book yesterday and started reading it on my Kindle Fire last night. I had a very hard time putting it down! It was only when I looked at the clock beside my bed and realized that I had to be up in 5 hours that I finally put it down. I can’t wait to get home and finish it tonight! I have a Kindle library full of great books that I’ve downloaded for free – all thanks to your free book ‘hookup’!
    Thanks from one grateful reader!
