Walking Across America - One Step At A Time

You can go anywhere if you do it one step at a time

Within the pages of Jim and Glenda Buckley’s new book, Walking Across America - One Step At A Time, ($18.99, paperback, 9781498450355; $9.99, e-book, 9781498450362) readers will discover the exciting true story of one man who walked across America to bring hope to the homes of America. Dr. Jim Buckley walked a monumental 3,131 miles in 187 days through 17 states – at the age of 66 turning 67 on the walk. His wife of 45 years drove an RV to be nearby while he walked. Their 22-foot RV displayed this message: Homes in America are in need of Jesus! Walking out of obedience to God, he and his wife met people on the road, giving them hope, as well as visiting people in homes and leaving them with hope in any situation. Walking Across America tells the story of following the call of God on a daily basis with all of its choices, challenges, and joys. Readers will be inspired, encouraged, and brought to tears in this real story across the beautiful states of America.

“Anything is possible and people need to believe that to make it through any trial,” states the author. “You can go anywhere if you do it one step at a time.”
