Americana

By Luke Healy
Illustrated by Luke Healy

The Pacific Crest Trail runs 2660 miles, from California's border with Mexico to Washington's border with Canada. To walk it is to undertake a gruelling test of body and spirit... challenge accepted.

This intimate, engaging graphic novel and autobiographical work recounts the author's own attempt to walk the length of the USA's west coast. Healy's life-changing journey weaves in and out of reflections on his experiences in America and his development as an artist, navigating both the trail itself and the unique culture of the people who attempt to complete it.

  • Healy's first graphic novel, How to Survive in the North, was one of Publishers Weekly's Best Books of 2016.
  • The second book from acclaimed author and illustrator Luke Healy.
  • A reflective narrative of personal growth, set against the picturesque backdrop of the American Pacific coast.
