From the Inside Flap:

With no itinerary and no plan for return, an embellishing opportunist pawns his possessions, buys a used motorcycle and sets out to create a better life on the roads of America.Weaving through all corners of the country for five years, the affable hustler takes innumerable jobs in myriad towns, witnessing and experiencing countless lives. Joining the work crew of a traveling carnival, he discovers both a stage name and a career -- telling the stories of all the people he met on the road, but telling them as his own.
Given a rare opportunity to debut in the national spotlight, the fantastically reinvented hero attempts to recall the candid truth behind his own heavily embellished, self-aggrandized, larger-than-life persona. Desperate to discover his own identity, he attempts to flee the life he created only to become a suspected con-man, a fugitive, and the subject of a nationwide manhunt. Accompanied by a young runaway and a disillusioned war veteran, the elusive protagonist attempts a 48-state search for the truth that might set him free.

From the Back Cover:

You are only as big as the dream you dare to live.
