Like most Americans at the time, Plennie Wingo was hit hard by the effects of the Great Depression. After months of struggling to feed his family on wages he earned digging ditches in Texas, Wingo decided it was time to do something extraordinary, and set out to walk around the world—backwards. A Pulitzer Prize finalist for his journalism with the Tampa Bay Times, Ben Montgomery here charts Wingo's trek—crossing the Atlantic, walking backwards through Germany, Turkey, and beyond—and details his daring physical feats, his genuine hardships, various comical misadventures, and the hostility of foreign police along the way.
