A Walk Across America
Transcript of A Walk Across America
After dinner Peter decided to not give into his prejudice nature and go over and play basketball with the black guys. His team won. Once the game was done the Oliver brothers invited Peter to camp out with them. After camping the brought Peter back to their house where Peter met Mary Elizabeth where they had dinner. Dinner was over and Peter still need a place to stay and the Oliver’s offered one of their bed rooms. Mary Elizabeth finally let Peter stay after see how well he treats Cooper and how much Cooper loves him. Mary Elizabeth’s only rule with staying in her house was to go to Mount Zion Baptist Church every Sunday. Since Peter didn’t have a suit in his pack he had to borrow one from Zack. When he went to church he felt reinvigorated.
10.Peter got a job at Timber Products. There his partner Lemm taught him everything he needed to know to run the machines by himself. Peter had been with the Oliver’s for a long time now and one day when he got home from work everybody was huddled on the floor and it started to hail and a tornado passed over. After it passed Peter went to help with the other people that the storm had damaged.
11.On the last day in Smokey Hallow Peters family and the Oliver’s had dinner and they said goodbye to Peter and Zack. Murphy and Sleepy Hallow The next big event in Peter’s walk was going to The Farm in Tennessee. The Farm is a cult where they follow a man named Peter Gaskins. These people, who have really high educations and no farming skills at all, leave the city to go follow him. He believes that god is out there but if you look for him he won’t be there. These people live in an unorthodox manner. After the people in the farm try and get him to stay and give everything to him but Peter didn’t want to. So the day he left the farm they were going on a ride and Cooper got ran over. This event changed his walk. Another major event in Peter’s walk is when he went to the revival in Mobile Alabama. Peter originally was going to go to a party but when we saw multiple signs for the revival his curiosity got the best of him and he went to check it out. After going to the revival he felt open and willing to find god in his own way. His last stop was in New Orleans where National Geographic wanted him to write about his story. He talked to one of the people that he meant at the revival and that person let him stay at the seminary where he met Barbara Pennell. He spent so much time with Barbara and they fell in love. But the realization that of they got married Barbara would have to go on the rest of the trip with him, so they decided to go to church to see if they could find a sign. When the preacher shouted out “Why wouldn’t you go with him” Barbara knew he should go with him. They got married and Peter continued his journey with Barbara to California.
