Author Rajam Rooseabout this book: Have you even wanted to just leave the constraints of modern society and hit the road? At age 20, RK gives away her belongings to begin a journey of hitchhiking and vagabonding that spanned 5 countries in the Americas. This book is her memoir that documents the amazing adventure and the people and culture's she was able to experience firsthand.

The title of this book has a double meaning. The term "road dog" is used for someone who spends all their time on the road. While I was traveling about, many grizzled old road veterans called me by this term. Road dog can also mean a traveling companion; after almost a year on the road, I adopted a 3 month old Sheppard/Lab mix puppy and he was my companion for the durations of my travels. He lived to the nice old age of 12, which is unusual for a 90 lb dog to live that long. He had developed a cancerous condition that struck his health quite rapidly and he died peacefully in my arms at the vet's office. He was an amazing dog and a dear companion.

There are several reasons I wanted to publish this memoir, the most important one is that I want to share with people the idea that anything is possible. If there's something you've been longing to do, don't let naysayers (which usually are your friends and family) talk you down from your dreams with images of fear and distrust. I learned that people in the world are generally good hearted and we all have much more in common than not. It is also very rare to find a travel memoir of this nature written by a woman, I wanted to share these experiences and show how a woman lived in a predominately male cultural lifestyle, hitchhiking.
