THE DOG WENT OVER THE MOUNTAIN, Peter Zheutlin

The New York Times bestselling author of Rescue Road and Rescued embarks on a cross-country journey to take the measure of America with a loyal friend.

“Poignant and magnificent. Brilliantly observed and Odyssean in breadth, this book reveals all that is generous about the American heart. A classic story of finding truth and humanity in the mundane―and how a man and his dog learned to live in the moment, on the trip of a lifetime.”
– Elissa Altman, author of Motherland

 On the cusp of turning 65, a man and his beloved rescue dog of similar vintage take a poignant, often bemusing, and keenly observed journey across America and discover a big-hearted, welcoming country filled with memorable characters, a new-found appreciation for the life they temporarily left behind, and a determination to live more fully in the moment as old age looms.

Inspired by John Steinbeck’s Travels with Charley, Zheutlin, hits the road for a 9,000-mile odyssey with Albie to experience all that American is and means today.  Similar in approach and tone to Bill Bryson’s best-selling travel classics, but with an endearing canine sidekick, The Dog Went Over the Mountain (Pegasus, September 2019) will delight dog lovers, baby boomers and anyone who seeks to experience life on the open road with a four-legged companion.

Praise for Peter Zheutlin and his new book:

Peter Zheutlin has written a lovely, moving, important book about a subject that is both heartbreaking and joyful. Greg Mahle, the central figure of this story, is now a hero of mine. Dogs are not just property. They are one way God tests our compassion.”
– Dean Koontz (Praise for RESCUE ROAD)

“A thought-provoking read very much in the spirit of Travels with Charley. Every generation rediscovers America anew; Peter and Albie capture the magic and essence Steinbeck discovered with Charley.”
– Michele Speich, Executive Director, National Steinbeck Center

“Entertaining and thoughtful. Packed with history, fascinating characters, and of course, fabulous dogs. A great book for anyone who loves dogs, road trips, or America. As someone who loves all three, I was captivated right from the beginning.””
– Teresa Rhyne, author of the #1 NYT bestseller The Dog Lived (And So Will I)

“Zheutlin and Albie got to share the kind of cross-country journey that most Americans only dream about in the autumn of their lives. This story should inspire countless to get out there and go while man and mutt both still have the energy and enthusiasm to explore.””
– Kim Kavin, award-winning author of The Dog Merchants

“Zheutlin takes readers on a road to enlightenment that delights in the ordinary and spins gold from the day-to-day observations of our divided nation in flux. It’s a tale as timely as it is timeless, with the bond between man and dog as its beating heart. Peter and Albie’s journey gives us hope that the America we dreamed of isn’t as far away or as nostalgic as we thought.”
– Rory Kress, journalist and author of The Doggie in the Window
