Allegiance to Winds and Waters: Bicycling the Political Divides of the United States

by Anne Winkler-Morey

“An offbeat personal account of an adventure from sea to shining sea. The author’s past study of political struggles give the work a distinctive flavor. Readers will keep turning pages…”  —Kirkus Reviews

In Allegiance to Winds and Waters a college professor from Minneapolis, bicycles the perimeter of the US with her spouse. Inspired by a study showing that Americans of all ideological stripes, are united in desiring a more equitable economy, she sets out to discover why we don’t have what we want.

 

“Enthralling and thoughtful memoir about what divides and unites us both as people and as a nation. Five Stars.”  — San Francisco Book Review 

Beaverdale Books in Des Moines was thrilled to host author Anne Winkler-Morey to discuss her book,  Allegiance to Winds and Waters: Bicycling the Political Divides of the United States. Anne brings warmth, wit, and plenty of stories about the remarkable 14,000 mile bicycling journey she made with her husband. She draws and engages a good audience while creating a sincere dialogue. She selects and tailors her readings to the crowd just enough to entice them to buy her book!”
