Joshua Chamberlain, great-great grandson of an acclaimed Civil War hero, competes in his first 26.2 miler, the venerable Marine Corps Marathon in Washington D.C.
Josh "zones out" during this classic physical test of endurance, allowing him to contemplate a gilded boyhood, stellar basketball career, and the elusive love of his life: the enchanting Autumn Andrews. Along the route, "The Colonel," a Medal of Honor winner at Gettysburg, manages to instill his own influence, enlightening Josh as to the real reason he's running the race.
This yellow brick road adventure takes the reader on a delightful romp through the nation's capital, to the strategic heights of Little Round Top, and to the sun-kissed virgin beaches of a beguiling little corner of northern Michigan rich with the values and characters that can only be found in small-town America.
Josh's spirited search for his past, present and future, affirms that in the long run, there's no place like home.
