Desperate to be free of a terrifying food addiction and driven by a terrible longing to find God, whomever and whatever that meant, Virginia began a ten-year journey that covered more than 10,000 miles by bicycle and countless inner miles of self-discovery and transformation. Her search takes her from a well-ordered, happy married life into divorce, chaos, confusion and despair-and ultimately to the unexpected and profound answer to her quest. This story follows a modern-day seeker as she bicycles her way-alone on back roads and in long distance races-all the way home, where she finds herself as she finds the God she is seeking. Virginia Mudd, a California native, has followed her heart into many diverse arenas-politics, business, education, the arts-as well as numerous bicycling adventures. Beneath it all has flowed the deeper call to self-discovery and personal kwledge of the divine. Virginia is also the author of Across America on the Yellow Brick Road. She lives in New Mexico with her husband and family of beloved animals.
