"Great book by a great guy." NPR
"Hitchhiking books fit better in a genre of alternative travel books, with Jack Kerouac’s On The Road, Bill Bryson’s A Walk in the Woods and Robert Pirsig’s Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. To that list of fun and funny and moving and important books, we should add Colin Flaherty’s Redwood to Deadwood, a 53-year old dude hitchhikes across America. Again." -- hitchwiki.org
"Great book by a great American writer." J. Stryker Meyer, #1 Amazon best selling author of Across the Fence: The Secret War in Vietnam.

Redwood to Deadwood,
"Before I tucked my thumb in for the final time, I'd run with wild horses. Visit a pot farm. Hunt big game. Poach big game. Get by a police helicopter. Get info family feuds. Ride in cop cars. Reconnect with old friends. Make new ones. Get tired and exhilarated. Lost and found. Kicked out and invited in."
"I know how to cook muskrat, squiirrel and rockchuck. And oh yea, I almost got killed.
All from hitchhiking around the country for three months.
Ok all you readers. If you like Bill Bryson or James Herriot, you will love Colin Flaherty. This book will make you laugh out loud and you will read it over and over. I rarely to never read anything written after 1780, and totally gave up finding new things to read.
Colin is just a great writer.
The book is smart and funny and crisp and very entertaining. Many thumbs up.
I find myself crying over your story of your brother. The visual picture and the emotions were eloquently communicated by your writings; it was very moving.
