9781891369933: Momentum Is Your Friend: The Metal Cowboy and His Pint-Sized Posse Take on America

"A reader's trifecta: a humorous travelogue, a stirring adventure tale, and a touching family story."—Bart King, author of The Big Book of Boy Stuff

For a four-thousand-mile bicycle ride across America, Joe's seven-year-old son Quinn rides a tagalong bike attached to his dad's, and behind that is five-year-old Enzo in a bike trailer. Our hero the Metal Cowboy answers the question "What are you, crazy?" with a resounding "Yes."

With no support crew except his boys' comic relief and the kindness of strangers, he pedals hundreds of pounds of gear and offspring over mountain passes, through thunderstorms, and into the heart of what it means to be a dad.

Review:

"As Melville is to the sea, MarkTwain to the raft, and Kerouac to the car, Kurmaskie is to the bike." -- —Andrew Lewis Conn, Author of P and The Last American Novel

"Give Huck Finn a bicycle, give Lance a sense of humor, give Kerouac a good editor and you have Joe_Kurmaskie." -- —Tom Lang, author of Coffee, Cat, and Mrs. Claus

"Intimate, ironic, worldly, wise, and most of all, fun. It reads like a wild, downhill ride with lots of switchbacks." -- —Robert Ferrigno, author of Prayers for the Assassin and Horse Latitude

"Joe Kurmaskie rolls with a keen sense of comedy and a big heart." -- —Christopher Moore, author of Lamb, Fluke and A Dirty Job

"Kurmaskie treats us to a reader’s trifecta: a humorous travelogue, a stirring adventure tale, and a touching family story." -- —Bart King, author of The Big Book of Boy Stuff
