a winding road overshadowed by dark trees

You & a Bike & a Road

by Eleanor Davis Author

Under a cloud of depression, and wanting an adventure before settling down to have a baby, Eleanor Davis set out by bicycle to ride from her parents' house in Tucson, Arizona to her home in Athens, Georgia. She chronicled the journey in moving, meditative comics that show her traversing her inner, emotional landscape as well as the route along the US-Mexico border and the people, places, and scenes she encounters along the way. Especially stirring is when she witnesses the aftermath of a high speed Border Patrol chase, with the pursued man crashing his car into a canal and being brought out with lassos. Reminiscent of Bill Brown's Dream Whip but with more art than text, this evocative story is something really special.
