Read Nick Baldock’s account of his epic trans-continental run and contribute to the Josie Russell Trust Price: £9.99 + postage
"This is a quite extraordinary book which tells, graphically, the story of a quite
extraordinary achievement. Nick Baldock, in support of the Josie Russell fund, actually
did just what the title says: he ran across America.
"This is an almost unimaginable feat of courage and endurance, and only a handful

- if something so gruelling can be considered travelling - and his comments are trenchant
and not without humour.

Lauren and,through her, for Josie. It is inspiring and also witty, personal and highly
