"Awake, Wild, Secret, Free documents the classic American cross-country road trip.

This particular one was taken by Andrew Barton and Sofie Sherman-Burton (author of Flavor, Two Plum Press 001) in May of 2014, motivated by the basic job of returning a 1990 Toyota Camry from Vermont to Oregon. 

On the way, Barton and Sherman-Burton stay with family, college friends, childhood friends, recent friends, and vague acquaintances. They spend several days in Vermont, before heading to upstate New York, through Ontario, into Michigan, on to Illinois, down to Indiana, spend a day in Kentucky, do another part of Indiana, then swoop through Missouri to Nebraska, on to Wyoming, Utah, Idaho, and finally home to Oregon. 

Many of America's culinary highlights are explored and revealed (from wild ramps and fiddlehead ferns in Vermont to lawn-side BBQ in Kansas City and spiralized French fries in Eastern Oregon), abandoned barns and town halls near rambling state highways are visited (and photographed), coffee is made on the roof of the car (every day), and cassette tapes are played to match each state's history and vibe.
