Big Appetite: My Southern-Fried Search for the Meaning of Life by Sam McLeod

51cqc-0ZW6L__SL160_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-dp,TopRight,12,-18_SH30_OU01_AA160_ After one of his friends has a heart attack, Sam heads to his doctor’s office for a checkup. The doctor’s advice? “…Sam, I’m telling you again, like I have so many times before, diets don’t work. You’ve got to find some meaning in your life that will motivate you to take care of your body – something that gets under your skin, something that grabs your imagination, something other than a diet. And only you can figure it out.”

So with that advice, an out of the blue invitation to a neighborhood reunion from his childhood sweetheart, Lexi, and strong encouragement from his wife, Sam hits the road from Walla Walla, WA. to Nashville, TN.

As he chronicles his time on the road, he reminisces about his childhood and weaves a nostalgic tale of growing up in rural Tennessee, childhood adventures, dilemmas, love and the meaning of life.

It’s a story a lot of people like myself can relate to. So what is the meaning of life? Read this book and find out for yourself.



While writing this, I was listening to "Medicine" from "2008 Amazon Free Sampler" by Rara Avis
