In the middle there were the great American parks, the deserts and grasslands of the West, ascents in the Rocky Mountains, the silence of Canada and the infinite solitude of Alaska. In all, 10,300 kilometres and 90 days. «We all go forth to seek America, and in the seeking we create her»: Waldo Frank, 1920s.
