About the Book: The Short, Short Hitchhiker is the autobiography of Stanley Gurcze, who spent a lifetime roaming the highways and byways of the western United States in search of adventure. What sets Stanley apart from your typical footloose vagabond is the fact that he has no feet! What he does have is a sympathetic ear, a droll wit, a keen sense of observation, a buoyant spirit and a unique perspective on the human condition. If you’ve ever felt sorry for yourself or pitied the “less fortunate” among us, this book could make you think again.
About the Editor: Born in Price, Utah, Richard Menzies has long been enamored with the American West, and over the years, he has traveled and documented it with his camera and pen. He has authored hundreds of magazine and newspaper articles and has exhibited his photography widely. His previous book is Passing Through: An Existential Journey Across America’s Outback.
