Synopsis: Raised along the coasts, surrounded by family and friends who felt, especially after the 2000 presidential election, that the states in America's middle section simply existed for people to fly over, Ari Kaufman was baffled by such naive logic. With the ample vacation time during summer, winter, spring and extended weekends granted to him as a teacher, Ari made it a point to explore all of America to as much a degree as time and money would allow. After resigning from education, one additional year as a freelance journalist enabled him to truly complete such a goal and create this book. In the past three years, Kaufman has, among much else, visited every professional baseball stadium, all of the lower 48 states, more than a dozen national parks and essentially all of America's major cities. The book encapsulates a year of writings, and is no more than a quixotic attempt to open up people's minds and expose them to (and even implore them to visit) places they wouldn't normally consider entertaining.
About the Author: Ari Kaufman was raised in America?s coastal cities, but amidst a short-lived career as a schoolteacher, he made time to discover America, touring various places and penning travel pieces. Ari is now a journalist residing in the midwest who has contributed to numerous newspapers and websites. He is also the co-author of an upcoming book on educational reform.
