Here’s what some have already said about Travels with Harley :


“A well-crafted memoir that captures what it means to be an American in these times—an antidote to pessimism and a reminder of what makes life worth living.”

General James N. Mattis, U.S. Marine Corps (retired) and Secretary of Defense

“Insightful and refreshing!”

Anne-Marie Slaughter, CEO, New America Foundation and author of The Idea That Is America

“A must read for those thinking about the future direction of America and what they can do about it.”

Kristin Lord, former Executive Vice President, Center for a New American Security

"If this book doesn’t make you want to grab a helmet and jump on a motorcycle to rediscover America, you need to check your pulse. A modern philosophic classic comparable to Thoreau’s Walden.

Dr. Lisa Schirch, Professor of Peacebuilding, Eastern Mennonite University

“Ride strong, and read this book!”

Admiral James Stavridis, U.S. Navy (retired), Dean of the Fletcher School at Tufts University

“Chris Holshek has written a brilliant account of his journey through our great land. His reflections, life lessons, and interpretations of his experiences are true gems that are well worth the read.”

General Anthony C. Zinni, USMC (Ret.) and author of Before the First Shots are Fired

“This once-in-a-lifetime story is vital and compelling, even for those who never will climb on a Harley.”

Jordan Ryan, Vice President, Peace Programs, The Carter Center
