The M*A*S*H actor, activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike embarks on a cross-country book tour visiting human rights and social justice organizations.

In May 2008—shortly after being named by the Los Angeles Times as a "Person of the Year"—Mike Farrell drove himself across the country on a book tour like no other. Networking with political groups (and friends like Joseph C. Wilson and Valerie Plame), Farrell redefined the very concepts of book touring and "promotion" through a progressive lens.

"Not since Steinbeck's Travels with Charley: in Search of America has there been a more beautifully written and compelling journey into the heartland of America. Mike Farrell celebrates his beloved country with great honesty and sincerity, with humility and grace. A beautiful and courageous book, an American classic." —Ron Kovic, author of Born on the Fourth of July

"Farrell writes with an upbeat, optimistic attitude, infused with humor, insights and soul. As he drives across the landscape, he also drives home important social justice issues." —Publishers Weekly
