Conversations With US - Great Lakes States is his first book
(author bio sheet below)
Unwilling to let the pollsters and pundits define his country, Chris Register traded his ergonomic lawyer’s chair for a stiff bicycle seat and set out to uncover the truth about the state of the nation today. After interviewing hundreds of everyday Americans during 16,000 miles of solo bicycle travel, Chris put down the kickstand to document this epic survey of the United States in his multi-volume Conversations With US series. His latest adventure involves moving from pedal to print with his publishing company, Spoke & Word Books.
The eight-volume Conversations With US book series documents Chris's pedal-powered exploration of the United States, focusing on the daily conversations he had with a diverse swath of Americans along the way. Chris toured the country in several regional blocks, averaging around 5 weeks and 1,900 miles per region.
These tours are now being documented in regional volumes, the first two of which have so far been published: Great Lakes States and American Southwest. Appalachia & Bluegrass Country is next in line.
