Riassunto: Why would anyone in their right mind spend eight spandex-clad weeks with a painfully skinny bicycle saddle wedged between their quadriceps? "Squeaky Wheels" is the travel memoir of an enterprising free-spirit and his pedal-powered journey across the United States in the summer of 2011. As the voyage steams (sweats, rather) eastward from Seattle to New York, he meets a diverse, humorous, and motley bunch of individuals in full support of his spirit of adventure, evidence that one's wildest dreams are in fact worth pursuing. The story is a testament to the power of welcoming the stranger and the good that resides in us all. Read it to laugh, read it to learn, or read it simply to remember that you are human. They say once you start pedaling you can't stop. So buckle your helmet, don spandex if you dare, and get ready for the ride of a lifetime.
L'autore: Scott Hippe is a medical student and long-time resident of the Pacific Northwest. When he is not on his bike, he enjoys spending time with his family, skiing, and writing. In 2011 he graduated from Gonzaga University with degrees in Biology and Spanish. He has extremely far-sighted vision but has somehow managed to keep his feet firmly planted in the present--albeit with spectacles that resemble magnifying glasses. He has written a scientific article detailing research on Salamander pheromones and, most recently, a travel memoir titled "Squeaky Wheels" about riding across the United States on a pedal-powered bicycle.
