Tyler was a young corporate lawyer at a big international firm in Chicago, with a six-figure salary, prestige, and a beautiful girlfriend. He had the life most law students dream of. But then he walked out on all of it and attempted to hike across the United States on foot with a tent, a copy of his grandfather’s favorite poem, and the rescue dog he’d just adopted, Mabel. A lot of people thought he was crazy, and some even placed bets on whether he would end up hurt or killed. Tyler and Mabel faced an incredible number of obstacles: mountains, deserts, and prairies, freezing rain, record heat waves, and the most violent tornado season in memory, bears and rattlesnakes and mountain lions—deadly bad drivers, threatened government shutdowns, other cross-country hikers, and student loans. They saw the best and worst of America and of themselves. Their story deeply touched people across America, and many—most of them people he had never met—showed him unimaginable generosity. By Men or By the Earth is the story of how and why Tyler set out to walk across North America, and what he learned along the way. It's about the mistakes he made before, during, and after the Walk. Part memoir, part revelation, part self-criticism, part instruction manual—Coulson’s account is an honest, sometimes brutally honest, depiction of a flawed man struggling to survive in a flawed system, and of the unshakeable bond between a man and his dog.
