Ride with a father and his son on an amazing journey through America's past.

On June 22, 1939, nineteen-year-old Jack Newkirk straddled a well-worn Harley-Davidson VL Big Twin and set out to see both the New York and the San Francisco World's Fairs. Both the boy and his country were on the brink of an irrevocable transformation. Both would soon be at war. And both would emerge forever changed. But for one last gilded summer, the "World of Tomorrow" promised peace and prosperity to a weary nation.

In "The Old Man and the Harley," author John J. Newkirk retraces this epic odyssey with his aging father. Along the way, they discover the healing power of the road, the faith and strength of the American people, and the inspiration to face some of today's most pressing challenges. The rickety 1930's-era Harley becomes a ride of revelation as the author paints a sweeping panorama of the bravery, ingenuity, and grit that turned the riders of the Great Depression into our Greatest Generation
