I’ve loved all of Dave Gorman’s books and was inspired to suggest America Unchained for #travelbookclub after our US road trip last year. The book follows Gorman’s journey as he travels from coast to coast in the US, with the aim of not giving any money to The Man (ie. big corporations).
On our road trip we made a similar rule to only eat and stay in independent places, which we found relatively easy on Route 66. But I think only using independent petrol stations, as Gorman tried to do, would have been much more of a problem!
