Revision of The Walk Across North Dakota

As I wrote about in April, I have been revising The Walk Across North Dakota this summer. Although the book won’t be finished until 2013 at the earliest, after we have walked the eastern half the state, I wanted to share some of the things I’ve been adding to the first edition. I’m not sure all of these will make the final cut, but most of them will. I welcome any feedback you have.

• Section on other people and animals that have done significant walks in or across North Dakota

• Section on the oil boom and its effects  (economic, social, environmental) on the state

• Sections on the history and present-day conditions of places we passed through on the trip: Assumption Abbey, Sentinel Butte, cities and towns, recreation areas

• Additional meditations, including Richard on the idea of using rafts on the WAND

• Expansion of the daily account, including more physical descriptions

• More details about our gear, including a section on technology we used

• Section on planning the WAND, including excerpts from written plans and other documents

• Quotations from notable travel literature

• Image of a drawing we made in a Medora bar

• Expansion of individual profiles

• Note explaining how Jeremy got the idea for Nodaiku

    Gwen, I appreciate your faithful dedication to the revision of the W.A.N.D. Chronicles. I had a thought that I would like to read more about the many individual or shared encounters each of the “Wanderers” had with interesting people along the way while on the journey!
