Follow The Fox Trails as Michael quits his job, donates his possessions, and leaves Minneapolis on a hand-me-down bike with $120, a guitar and limited gear. The Mississippi River leads the way on this life or death journey of personal discovery. Come along for the ride as he pursues his dreams in writing and pedals into the unknown on a month-long cross-country bicycle adventure down the backbone of America in search of a new way of living.

Experience nature’s wonders and the magic of synchronicity within this timeless, true-life adventure as you follow The Fox Trails on a guided tour through the heart of modern-day America. With pages full of daring explorations resembling a Huck Finn mixed with the spiritual undertones of a Siddhartha, fans of Jon Krakauer’s Into the Wild will resonate with the river’s song. Find your voice and sing along in harmony to the tune of a universal message in this lyrical read. Everything will be questioned during the course of this life-changing journey of the soul as the current pulls you toward the answers that you’ll find…at the end of The Fox Trails.


“A thoroughly enjoyable read. He writes about the trip that we all wish we could take in our lives. The writing style and vocabulary feel familiar in a way that makes you feel like he’s a close friend. This book is for those into adventuresome tales along the lines of Jack Kerouac’s “On The Road,” or Jon Krakauer’s “Into the Wild.” -Leah Monson


“I really enjoyed this book. Not only because it reads so easily (which is good for me), but because it makes you feel like you’re along for the ride. Every chapter you wake up with Michael on a new day of the adventure. He shows courage in certain social situations, while at the same time showing vulnerability at certain junctures of the journey making you connect with his humanity. A down to earth, fun experience. Yet it definitely left me with questions about how I view our society today. But that’s a good thing in my opinion! I highly recommend it!” -Matthew Ramberg


“Fox’s story evokes the struggles and joys of life on the road, and explores the heart of a nation in smooth, contemplative prose. Illuminating to be sure.” -Keenan Schofield


“If you are looking to take in a story that captures the spirit and essence of the American rambler, this is it. The author leads you on journey through the heart of America, checking the pulse as he goes. There are ups and downs, and he holds back no punches. At times you feel like you are in his shoes living this incredible journey right there with him. Other times you are able to step back and reflect on our society and progression that has led our country down the path that we are on. Great read, and a solid book.” -Levi Marriott
