It started as a vague dream: to feel the gravel sliding beneath his feet and the sun baking his skin, to experience North America’s great wildernesses firsthand. Highway Call traces the travels of author Keith Hauser through 1970s North America, hitchhiking and hopping freight trains, always searching for the real heart of of a turbulent continent: From Fundy Bay to Quadra Island and down to Los Angeles and Florida, riding boxcars along the Fraser River, dodging downpours in Savannah, and long nights spent around the Jasper Free Camp campfires.

There were many wilderness hikes in majestic national parks, and run-ins with police, bears and drunks. There were odd-jobs in the orchards of Washington. And, most of all, there were memorable encounters with countless generous people along the way. Hauser's adventures were captured in a series of letters, newspaper articles and fictional stories that have now been edited and crafted into this book.
