"In this beautifully written memoir, author Emily Buehler shares the hard won joys and sorrows of her bicycling journey across America. She thought it was going to be many things. But the surprising outcome was a deep change in her way of looking at life. She shares her experiences with an honest voice, and how they shifted her understanding of letting go, finding balance, and living with the rhythms of life—both the ups AND the downs. An enjoyable and worthy read for anyone interested in living a more balanced and happy life."
—Ragini Elizabeth Michaels, author, Unflappable—Six Steps To Staying Happy, Centered, And Peaceful No Matter What

It’s Eat Pray Love meets Wild, on bikes.

One summer in her late twenties, Emily and her friend Mary rode their bicycles from Cape May, New Jersey, to Oceanside, Oregon. In three months on the road, they battled 14 percent grade hills, tornado-force winds, and 110 degree heat. They were sheltered and fed by everyone from nuns to cowboys. They swam in the Missouri River, climbed the Rocky Mountains, and crossed the Continental Divide—three times. And eventually, they reached the Pacific.

Emily left on the trip in the hope of finding peace and happiness away from the clutter of life, a permanent solution to depression that she could bring home with her. With nothing to do but ride her bike all day, out under the open sky, life would be simpler…or would it?

Emily Buehler is an author and editor based in Hillsborough. Her first book, Bread Science, covers the science and how-to of baking bread. Emily teaches classes and workshops on bread baking. After finishing her second book, Somewhere and Nowhere, Emily began writing fiction. In addition to being an author, Emily is an editor. She received her Ph.D in chemistry from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and began her editing career working on research reports and academic papers before moving into a wider range of material.

"Beautifully written. This volume is an incredible voyage into insights—it answers questions I could not let myself ask."
—Carla Parvin, co-owner/founder of Niki Silver adult therapeutic coloring books

"A fascinating read about what it feels like to have psychic abilities—they can be scary until you learn to accept and embrace them."
—Karyn Davis, Soul Gardener

Hearing and seeing people's thoughts is frightening and exhausting. To Hannah Davis, it's more a curse than a gift. She has carried this burden for as long as she can remember and it keeps her from forming meaningful relationships or holding on to jobs.

Finding herself, once again, at a crossroads, an invitation from a stranger prompts the young woman to quit her job and head to 1980's Sedona.

The weeklong retreat challenges Hannah to confront her feelings about her ability. The exercises presented to Joyful Explorers' participants trigger new psychic encounters and stir up memories and flashbacks of haunting visions.

Beth Thran Bunch's first novel, Hearing Voices, draws on some of her own experiences from her spiritual journey begun in the 1980s. Trained as a massage therapist, Reiki Master/Teacher, and Bach Flower Registered Practitioner, she practices energy healing modalities in Brevard. She also works as a distance healer with Casa de Santa Maria in San Luis, CO. Beth enjoys hiking and exploring Transylvania County's numerous waterfalls.
