The Long Road North
We have all been there. A point that can send our lives in one direction or the other. This is a point where we can either continue the way we have been living or branch out, take a chance, and seek more out of life.
The Long Road North chronicles this juncture in Quentin Super’s life. His memoir takes us through various stages that many people have experienced: partying, promiscuity, emptiness, and eventually a desire for something more.
For Super, this “something more” entailed riding his bicycle through the grueling Minnesota winter with his best friend during their spring break in March 2015. Together, they rode eight hundred miles from St. Cloud, Minnesota, into Canada, all the way to Winnipeg, Manitoba. Once they finished their time in the major metropolis, they turned around and went all the way back.
Captured in this book is just how difficult the journey was from a physical, mental, and emotional perspective. The raw honesty will draw tears. The mesmerizing storytelling will keep readers engaged. But the lengths Super went to find out more about himself and the world will inspire a generation.
