HOLY HITCHIKING FOREIGN HIGHWAYS relates an odyssey on four Continents. Vernon Elgin began hitchhiking rural dirt roads in Pennsylvania when he was an adolescent. He graduated from dirt and asphalt to concrete, from Armstrong County Route 210, to Pennsylvania Route 422, to U.S. Route 66. Most of his hitchhiking conveyed him to work or college; all of it afforded him pleasure and adventure. He frequently broached religion as a topic of conversation with the driver. More often than not he received a stimulating response. He credits his education on the road for contributing to his future clergy profession.
