When wildfire destroyed her home in the hills above Los Angeles, the author seized the opportunity that her sudden "stufflessness" offered. She hit the road with her husband and dog in the Phoenix One, a custom-built, four-wheel drive office and motorhome.Roads from the Ashes is the story of how a sabbatical that began with no itinerary and no return date grew into a five-year North American odyssey with a mission: "to be at work, at home and on the road, all at the same grand moment". From Indian chief to surprise tornado, from Big Bend to Times Square, the author weaves a tapestry of the remarkable characters and unexpected experiences only five circuitous years on the road can bring. From her rolling perspective, she also traces the explosion of the Internet and the development of www.RoadTripAmerica.com, the only online magazine produced entirely from the road. It's an adventure from the smallest back roads to the farthest reaches of cyberspace -- a dashboard chronicle of the Web Rush years by one of its most unusual pioneers. A saga of personal growth with universal appeal, Roads from the Ashes provides a context for others who are seeking their own paths into the new millennium of global communication.
