Summary
At the age of fifty, the author set off on a journey following America's northern border from coast to coast. In the course, among other things, he flies the Maine border with a bush pilot, learns about the past and present hardships in the mines of the Mesabi Range, crosses into Manitoba to reach the sliver of U.S. territory called the Northwest Angle, and fishes for trout in northern Idaho
