On God's RADAR: My Walk Across America, with Richard Schoen

Following the death in 2017 of his father, Robert Schoen set off on a coast-to-coast journey. After stepping into the Pacific Ocean in Southern California, he walked east for 40 days and nights, until he faced defeat by a heat dome that brought extreme temperatures to the Southwest. Early the following year, he was back on the road, determined to complete his journey. He persevered through freezing weather, steep climbs, blisters, barbed wire, rain, lightning, fire, and smoke until - 2,644 miles and 14 states later - he waded into the Atlantic Ocean. This is a photojournalistic tour of America told with humor and passion by a man who experienced the best and worst of what our country - and its people - has to offer. 

Robert Schoen is the author of the award-winning book What I Wish My Christian Friends Knew About Judaism and the co-author (with Catherine deCuir) of the novel The Rabbi Finds Her Way. He is a musician and has served as Composer-in-Residence at Temple Sinai in Oakland.
