What is aMoreWith his next college reunion fast approaching and middle age bearing down on him, Brad Herzog decides its time to take stock: how has he measured up to his own youthful aspirations? In contemporary America, what is a life well lived? What is a heroic life? To find the answers to these classic questions, he hits the road, wending his way toward his alma mater in Ithaca (New York) like a modern-day Odysseus in Kerouac clothing, stopping only in classically named towns.

Musing as he goes on what Homers tale and Greek myths have to say about meaning and values, he finds the inspiring, stirring, and sometimes wry stories of ordinary Americans living exemplary or unusual lives--such as a teacher in a one-room schoolhouse in Troy (Oregon)- a soldier and father in Sparta (Wisconsin)- an energetic preacher in Apollo (Pennsylvania)- and a lifelong hobo in Iliad (Montana). From them he gleans timely lessons about leadership, legacy, sacrifice, and resilience.
