Polly Letofsky

Author Polly Letofskyabout this book: Polly Letofsky had a childhood dream to walk around the world, and finally left at the age of 37. On August 1, 1999, she left her home in Colorado and headed west across four continents and over 14,000 miles -- by foot -- to become the first woman to walk around the world. Her walk was a dedication to women by way of breast cancer awareness. Families put her up in their homes, locals picked up her check at the diner, the world had embraced her. But who knew that the time in world history would put her in the middle of the Muslim world during the cross roads of 9/11.

The primary readers of 3mph would be people facing an enormous challenge in their life; changing jobs, starting a business, losing weight, getting out of debt, or fighting a health crisis. Polly's story, while told with pithy dialogue and razor sharp humor, will inspire her readers to take on their own daunting journeys -- one step at a time.
