With excitement in their hearts and a good luck billiken in their bedroll, they pedaled, pushed, and walked a thousand miles north for fifty-four days. Camp was wherever, whenever the sun was gone; food was an occasional meal from a kindly farm wife and what they could fish, hunt, or glean. Evelyn Gibb, daughter of one of the cyclists, has drawn on her father's recollections to tell this incredible story in his voice. Readers of all ages will find themselves pulled into the resolute push to complete the trek. Two Wheels North is an account of a journey that today we can only dream about - one that finds two boys on the road not only to Seattle, but also to manhood.
